Nope. Its super easy to do.
There are 4 screws (two top and two bottom) that hold the piece of trim on in front of the gauges. Take those 4 screws out and then pull the trim piece off. Then there are 4 screws holding on the gauge cluster assembly that you take out, then the whole thing pulls right out. There are 3 wiring connectors on the back that you have to unplug, and you can't get the cluster out very far before you do...You can just get it out far enough to get your hand back there to unplug them....then it will come all the way out.
It can be done in 5 minutes.
