my new cluster ?? I'd like to get the plastic cover off so I can paint my needles ghetto fab. red. How do I go about doing this?????

Also, I hear all this talk about batteries... where are they? and if I didn't get them with my cluster... what kind do I buy, and where the heck do they go????

The plastic is clipped in and held with an adhesive. I used a thin blade and then a very small screwdriver to slowly pry the plastic off the front.

The SI batteries are on a board in the bottom rear of the cluster. Write-ups on how to replace them is here ---> http://www.bimmerdiy.com/e30/electrical ... look for SI board batteries. You can buy batteries at any surplus or electronic store.
