Ok I was able to remove the old cluster but it was a little tough. I ended up on bolting the dash from the top next to the window and pulling back the dash and sliding the cluster up and out. So I removed speedometer from the cluster and then very carefully I pulled back the tags and took out the fragile glass. So when it gets warmer I am going to remove the only the speedometer from behind the dash that is not working on my 56 400 and then take out the 4 screws that hold cluster in and push it back so I can remove the glass and install new glass and then put in the new speedometer from behind. Hopefully much easier.

I want to thank all of you for all your suggestions!!!

HH56 thank you for the great procedure you wrote and the color coded wiring too. I will be taking the cluster out of my parts car first. Again cold here in Connecticut will wait for a warm spell. Taking this cluster out of the 56 Packard parts car will be great practice so I will be able to take it out of my 56 400 easier... Thanks Again Gary

So in the 1956 Packard Service manual it is showing a 1955 Packard cluster. So there are 4 more connections because the oil pressure and generator gauges for 56 are not idiot lights but are now gauges plus looks like a oil pressure hookup on the gauge now. This looks more complicated. If any of you have a better view of the 56 cluster it would help me and also the wiring hookup as what is what I do appreciate it. I need to take the one out of my parts car first, not doing this yest as I live in Connecticut a we just got 10 inches of snow here.
Thanks Gary

Is there a easy way to take out the cluster? I am worried of not being able to see what wires need to be where they should be as there is not alot of room behind the dash.
So does the steering wheel support need to be dropped and I will gain more access to the cluster?
