So I have had a lot of people ask how I removed the trim around the speed cluster and I was taking the vinyl off tonight to paint it and grabbed some photos. To remove you just pull out but the photo's show where the tabs are.

Thanks for the photos! I'm wanting to put a little tape on mine since it's had an intermittent squeak since 50k miles.

Thanks!
Do you know if the black rings around the Fuel Level & Water Temp are removable? I know you would have probably pull the entire cluster to get the clear plastic off...

Since they are behind the Plexiglas I would assume the whole cluster has to be removed,

I didn't realize how different it was custom till I was at the dealership and saw a brand new cruze and it looked so bland with the silver, I think its a easy and good looking MOD for anyone to do.

I took my trim rings off for a while to track down a buzzing sound. What I found was that putting the trim back on was harder than taking it off. There are some little pointy guides in addition to the tabs and I found it is possible to get it back on the wrong way, which created a terrible squeak over bumps. A little silicone spray and putting it back the right way fixed it.
