Disclosure: Many parts are small, fiddley, and brittle. I am not responsible for those parts broken or inoperable after completion.
This mod took me roughly 45 minutes to complete, and yes as fairly easy. Please give your self time to not feel rushed.
Small to medium Phillips head screw driver
T25 bit driver
Bone pic/ small flat head used for prying
Parts: You can do s full swap but the millage will be off and may be able to be programmed. To avoid this mess I bought a broken/ for parts gauge cluster out of a 2010 XC60 R Design.
You will need to remove 3 screws from the top of the cluster housing. 2 are for the overhead light panel while the 3rd is the in the center at the top while looking at the back of the cluster.
Once the screws are removed and the overhead light mount is pulled away you can begin to carefully pry the clips. Pry all the black and clear plastic clips being careful not to break any. These are extremely fragile. The clear fascia and black housing will pop out with relative easy. The Trip meter button will also slip through with out any hangups
You will be left with this
You will no longer need to remove any more screws from the donor cluster. Gently begin to pry up the outer silver ring and blue gauge face from the clear plastic below. I highly suggest starting from the top left away from the needle and working your way around. Again be very careful as not to damage the needle let alone the gauge face. These are almost paper thin and like everything else brittle plastic. you will need to break this free from the center black ring around the info screen. Once free you can slip the face around the needle and pull it out all together.
Pulling your original cluster
Start by putting you steering wheel in the lowest and farther out position it will go. Pull on this black trim piece at the base of the cluster and it will snap freely of the dash. Be sure to pull out not up.

This lower piece is also connected to a soft vinyl cover connected to your steering column. do not force this it will unclip easily.
here is is removed. You will also now have access to the 4 T25 screws 1 on each lower corner and 2 above. Use a bone pick to pull the top of the cluster down and then pull out. There is 1 wire harness on the left side which will have enough room to pull out and unclip.
Repeat the steps from the donor cluster to remove the boring faces on your original cluster. Be extra careful here as you will be putting this one back together for daily use.
Here is the most tricky bit installing the faces into your original cluster.
You will slip the face around the needle and in reverse of earlier pry the gauge face around the black center ring. The black ring will sit higher then the gauge face when complete. Make sure the face is seated right before continuing. In this process you will bump the needle, do your best not to move it
once completed it will look identical to your donor cluster before you started but now you have your odometer and display screens you know work.
Take a moment before putting you fascia back up to clean up. you don't want any dust or finger prints inside the cluster. Also let things dry completely to avoid any moisture.
Final assembly will look like this and it ready to reinstall on the car.
Finally reinstall the wire harness, 4 t25 screws, and the lower trim piece and wala
Go for a test drive with a giant smile and enjoy
