The difficult bit is getting the actual console out of the dashboard and also re-connecting the speedo cable. The rest should be pretty straightforward. All the dials unscrew individually and the wiring is simple.

Quick tip for refitting speedo cable.............
If you get under the car, drivers side, there is a `P` clip securing the speedo cable screwed to the edge of the tunnel. Undo that & pull the cable out of the dash to connect it up. Put the clocks back & the cable will go back then refit the `P` clip.
