I bought an upgraded instrument cluster from white auto.


It’s a drop in replacement for the instrument cluster but I need someone to give me the step by step instructions for removing the cluster.

Any help?

Aside from someone with access to GM's online service portal that I believe tech's have access to, its going to be tough getting diagrams or official instructions. You might get lucky if one of them reading this provides the info.

Have you tried to uninstall it?

From what I can remember:

On the left side of the steering column, there’s a panel beside the digital parking brake, pop that off. There should be some bolts to unscrew to the right side of that panel. Take a wedge and pry down that bottom plastic piece that is the lower half of the steering column. Go towards your center console and remove that leather piece beside your gear shifter (it pops off), and then pry down the other side of that plastic piece under the steering column. There should be a bolt at the top corner (top left of the air vent). Lower your steering wheel and pop off the top plastic piece that connects the steering wheel to the dash and then remove that chrome trim around the whole cluster. There’a 4 bolts to remove, two at the bottom corners of the cluster and two in the corners (kind of hidden) on both sides of the cluster. Takes like 20 minutes max!

Also I used this company for an upgraded cluster and it works perfectly! The only issue I had is a service request for adaptive speed control, which I don’t have, so I’m waiting to hear back if there is a way to remove that flag, because everything else is awesome!

Did you contact White Auto media about removing the error flag for the adaptive cruise. I don’t want to run into that.

How did you remove the bolt to the top left of the air vent? It seems to be underneath the plastic that needs to be removed?

any more detailed help getting the new cluster in would be greatly appreciated!

Everything works properly. Same mileage, etc. No data is stored in the display itself. Cost was about $730 delivered for a brand new display from White Auto and Media (programmed with the optional custom pocket gauges...which I LOVE). Plus, I can sell the old (brand new) cluster to recoup some of the cost.

BTW - With the optional pocket gauges, I have a better display now than the RS/Premier. I chose to make my left pocket display economy metrics and my right pocket display DTE.

Miles are not stored on the cluster. You can swap and miles will be retained by the car’s computer.

Plug and play. No extra wiring. However, if you’re upgrading the cluster, you need it programmed by White Auto and Media.
