Question instrument cluster up by mirror

So I think I have a loose ground wire in my instrument cluster up by mirror. It will turn off and if I thump on it a little it will turn back on. What is the best way to take it down to look at the wires?

first pop the plastic bezel off around the whole computer, it should come off as one assembly. Next remove the torx screws that hole the computer to the roof, next there are 3 or maybe 4 little screws that hold the computer module together, remove those screws and the unit will open up. there is a common problem with these overhead console computers, there are I believe 7 or maybe less don't quote me but there are quite a few little resistors that come detached from the face of the circuit board that need to be either re-attached or you can stop by radio shack and pick some up like I did. I do not recall what ratings the resistors are, I did this two years ago and I'm trying to recall, but hopefully somone with more knowledge of this repair will chime in, GL
