Default Info on removing Speedometer Bezel?

I am having my speedometer and airbag bezel painted at a local body shop. I have info on the airbag bezel. Has anybody posted or have info on taking the guage bezel off. It seems like other parts may need to come off first?

I would imagine that you have to take the bezel off to replace the lamps...

I think he means the passenger side air bag cover?

Then why did he say this in his post? " I have info on the airbag bezel."

Thanks Crewzin, I will have to read it a few times to get it. Since I don't have to undo lamp connectors etc., maybe I don't have to do all the steps. Wow, disconnecting the battery terminal is a really good tip. I'll check with Candyman also, I think he posted somewhere how to prep those parts for painting. I want to make sure the autobody guy that I know does it right. This forum has been so helpful. I should have come here 5 years ago when I got my first PT.

i've done this so many time's already when tinting the cluster face plate that covers it. I'm gonna try to install some new led's in the cluster so i'll take some pix for you, if you havent done it already.

Oh one thing i forgot to say, is that when you reconnect your battery, if you keep track of you MPG's on the cluster, don't be alarmed if you see it jump up to 24.9. It'll go back down once you start driving it.
