[200q20v] Cluster

There are several wiring connectors that attach to the
back of the IC.  The multi-wire connector blocks have
a small band of plastic that must be pulled outward from
the center of the connector to release the connector block.
A small flat-blade screwdriver can be used to pry out the
small plastic band in the center of each connector block to
release them.  I think there are three connectors that need
this treatment.  On the right side of the IC over the 3 gauges,
there are some single bulb connectors that must be removed.
Rotate them counterclockwise about a quarter of a turn
(unscrew) to release.

Have you removed the steering wheel?  I've done it
without on two 200's.  Be very careful of the wood trim.
I put two strips of masking tape over the wood.  The IC
will come out on the passenger side of the steering
wheel with some careful positioning and a little effort.

Be patient.  It can be done.  Put the hammer down.
Get a mirror and a flashlight.

I don't remember exactly but the part that needs to
be soldered to fix the speedo needle bounce is the
connector between the two boards.  On mine, it was
either one end or the other where it attaches to the
board.  I just reheated the solder and let it cure again.
