RE: [Chrysler300] Dash pod removal 300C

They are 7/16” nuts.  Use an open end wrench on the top two and a socket on the bottom nut.  Lube the speedo cable too if not done for years (decades).  I just did this on my ’57 NYer.

The speedo and gauge pod attachment method and removal is identical. You would only have to remove the gauge pod. The pod has 3 threaded posts around the edge and is secured with nuts from the back.
3/8 or 7/16, can't remember the exact size. No real tricks, it's just getting a hand up there.  You'll be able to feel the fasteners around the edge of the pod.  You may not need a ratchet. I used a socket on a short extension,
the nuts weren't on that tight. 

Since you'll be in there.... maybe take out the speedo pod (unscrew the speedo cable first from the back of the pod) and clean up both. You can also oil the often neglected speedo lube wick on the back of that pod. Easy to see
when the pod removed.  A few drops of light oil. More isn't better. Also check and replace any burned out dash lights.

A quick note.... it is a bad temp gauge? Some of the temperature sending units sold today will fit in place but are not calibrated for the C. They give false reads, both high and low.  From memory, I think my last replacement
was a NORS stock # TSU18.

Greetings! I have a bad temperature gauge in my 300C and need to replace it! After looking around a bit it looks like I will have to remove it from behind the dash and there is not much room to access it! Does anyone have any tricks to make this easier? Thanks in advance! Bill
