Turn the cluster over and disconnect the two electrical connectors on the back. They are keyed so when you put it back in, they will only go in one way. There is a slot for a 3rd connector which is unused on my car, maybe on the 96's where there was alot more stuff in the IC there may be 3 connectors to disconnect.
And that's it, after removing those two, the IC comes right out. Sorry to all the column shifter people, ours is much easier to remove. If you want to remove the lens, to change the needles or paint the bezel or anything like that, remove the torx screws around the outside of the cluster, just like in Ashley's pictures.
