Re: digi cluster fix

Drop the steering column a little bit and pull the dash top off.
You have to try to slip the connectors off the center back of the dash gauges. I am pretty sure they are press fit only.
The DIC is a pressure clip that has to be pressed to release the wire harness from the DIC.

The films you are talking about are just a plastic with a painted/printed surface for the background colours.

You could use something called plasticard to replace it with but I don't know how it holds up to UV.
