from the 2010 MK service manual:

The instrument cluster assembly houses 4 analog gauges standard on all models and has provisions for up to 25 International Control and Display Symbol icon indicators, that are all controlled by the Cab Compartment Node (CCN). The gauge graphics are white against a black field except for a single red graduation at the high end of the gauge scale on both the engine temperature and fuel level gauges, and several red graduations at the high end of the gauge scale on the tachometer that designate the red line area, making them clearly visible within the instrument cluster in daylight. When illuminated by the cluster illumination lighting, the white text and graphics as well as the red graphics still appear the same, the red gauge needles have internal optical illumination. Gauge illumination is provided by dimmer controlled Light Emitting Diode (LED) units soldered onto the CCN circuit board. The Gauge set and indicators shown above are an integrated part of the CCN, therefore are only serviced as a unit with the instrument cluster. The cluster lens and the cluster hood and mask unit are the only components of the instrument cluster assembly that can be serviced separately

The instrument cluster includes the following analog gauges:

Engine Temperature Gauge (20)
Fuel Gauge (34)
Speedometer (6)
Tachometer (13)

2010 MK cluster removal

WARNING: To avoid serious or fatal injury on vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, airbag, seat belt tensioner, impact sensor or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the SRS. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment.

CLUSTER ASSEMBLY (see first picture)

1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
2. Remove the instrument panel top cover.
3. Remove the four screws (2) that secure the instrument cluster (1) to the instrument panel structural support (3).
4. Pull the top of the instrument cluster rearward far enough to access and disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connectors from the connector receptacles on the back of the cluster housing.
5. Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel.

CLUSTER LENS, HOOD AND MASK (see second picture)

1. Working around the perimeter of the cluster, disengage each of the nine integral latch features that secure the cluster lens (3) to the cluster hood and mask unit (2) and to the cluster housing (1).
2. Remove the lens from the face of the cluster hood and mask unit.
3. Working around the perimeter of the cluster, disengage each of the six integral latch features that secure the cluster hood and mask unit to the cluster housing (1).
4. Remove the hood and mask unit from the face of the instrument cluster.
