A: Hello there, thank you for asking about you...

Hello there, thank you for asking about your 1990 Geo Storm. Your best option would be to purchase a service manual for your year model. The entire instrument panel must be removed in the process as well as many other small connections and fasteners. A service manual will give you detailed directions with pictures and tips about special tools.
