Should be plug and play.  Remove the mounting screws and unplug it.  What happened to your original one?  Where did you source a new screen from?

Under the dash on either side of the steering wheel you should see 2x 1/4" 20 bolts with nuts and washers that hold the bottom of the Malivue cluster to the lower dash pad. Looking at the cluster, center mass, inside on the upper lip of the cluster will be a Phillips head screw, screwed to the upper dash pad.  Remove those 3 fasteners and the only thing left connected will be the 4 plug ins for the: tach, speedo, left and right bank push button connectors and the blue Malivue video cable (screwed in). You will probably have a loose cable for a chart plotter floating around behind there also, at least I did on my '10. Now for the fun part! The dash was assembled before installation so the fit is going to be tight for removal and installation, with removal being a lot easier. You will have to slightly lift the upper dash pad and roll the top of the cluster towards you and lift out once the upper part of the cluster clears the upper dash pad. Be extremely careful of the 2 lower 1/4" x 20 bolts. They are epoxied to the bottom of the cluster and can potentially break off and they will gouge the heck out of anything upholstered if not capped or taped. Reassembly is in the reverse order and as I recall the cables were specific to their location and marked accordingly. I had to fix one of the lower bolts a couple years back so I know the pain! Shoot me a PM if you wan to talk more details. Bill

The 2 bolts/nuts are under the dash on either side of the steering column.

Hi Bill

all sorted on the 2013 vtx you have to remove the top screen and go in to the side screens from there this is the only way in. so they are very year and model specific on how you get to these screens.

Out of curiosity, how much was the new screen. I think mine maybe acting up.

only place you get one is dealer.  Price will depend on dealer.
