Speedometer bezel

85 Olds 98 Regency Brougham..Trying to remove the speedometer. I am working with the plastic bezel around the speedometer. I removed the two screws at the bottom, and the bezel seems loose, but still clinging to the dash pad at upper left and right corners. I assume there are clips holding it in, and if I pull out at the corners it will pop off. I just don't want to break the bezel or damage the dash pad. Has anyone been through this process? Thanks in advance...

Have NOT been through the process. My recommendation would be, if possible to put a mirror behind the housing to see if you can determine what is still holding the bezel in place.

I would also note that my reply may very well be the only one you shall receive here.

You might have more luck getting a definitive answer by coming over to ==> Classsic Oldsmobile Forum and posting your query there.

Great..Thanks for the response..I did try the mirror, but just no room to fit it in. I will try the other site.

For anyone that cares....I finally went all in, and pulled forcefully on the speedometer bezel, and it popped off. There are three clips across the top, that the bezel slides into. Clips look like the ones on the back of your garage door opener. Cheers...
