    I installed ScreenProtech 2 weeks ago and popped all the trim off to install, making it a lot easier. So far it has improved the look and made it easier. It was a bit hazy at first then got clearer later hiding the scratches that were there. I only cleaned the plastic lens once since I bought it, right before the install and there were scratches from that one time.

    Keeping this thread alive and well, I just spoke with a Toyota parts dealer in Lakeland, FL. Really cool guy. Very helpful. He shared with me an exploded diagram of what he had on file when I gave him the part number 83852-04J70. He seemed to think it was just the plexiglass piece and confirmed that his parts catalog referenced years 2016-2023 for this part number, not just 2016-2017. From looking closer and discussing with me, he seemed to think that the plexi can just be removed carefully by the tabs shown in the diagram.
    Seeing as how I haven't quite gotten into pulling the dash apart yet for this project, I can't speak to that and confirm myself. However, I have an idea of what I will be doing now on my next off day. lol

    If it is indeed just the plexi and a separate black housing around the instrument gauges, it could very well be a separate part that could either be ordered or meticulously worked on to paint the trim/bezel. Either way, now I want to know and will be pulling the instrument cluster out to investigate myself. Once I am able to do so, I will report back to confirm either way if someone else hasn't figure this out already.

    I'm including the exploded diagram for anyone who is interested to look at.

    The SR / SR5 models differ from the TRD+ models with the center cluster display for the 16-19 years I believe. I think the SR / SR5 got the same ones in the 20+ models and the SR ones are black and have red dials? Again not sure with the lower trim years
    I would like a black internal one. I bought one a few years ago to take it apart to paint the insides black but cracked the lens trying to get it open.

    Thanks for the clarification. So you said it cracked trying to get the lens off? I'm assuming from what looks like a seal around it maybe. It sure looks like it has some kind of adhesive seal around the edge of the lens when I had the trim pulled off the other day looking around. Haven't had enough time to unfasten the cluster assembly from the dash to inspect further.

    It seemed like it was plastic welded together all the way around. At the time when I tried the cluster was only $20-$23 so I knew I wouldn't be out much if it didn't end out well

    I know this is an old thread but I have cracks in my stress cracks in my cluster so I gave the local Toyota parts guy the part number found at the beginning of this thread. It's still a good number, bad news its back ordered till middle of Oct but it's only $38.
