Re: Changing Cluster!

I presume you have looked at the fordmods web site... print off the article, and get a quote from an auto electricitian. Or see if anyone on FF who has done it will do it for you!

BTW... is the seat still playing up??

Re: Changing Cluster!

EBXR Falkeens article is based of that article with a few more added tips. But your right just ring a auto electricitian or go down to one and se what he says. Look its not that hard. A little bit of fiddleing but seems like a good run through

Re: Changing Cluster!

mate go out and buy it (you will need it anyway, even if a pro fits it). Then pull your dash appart, there is two screws under caps at the top of the cluster, then it slides out with a bit of persuadance.

I havent changed the cluster, but wouldnt imagine it would be too hard, especially for what a pro would charge you (i shudder to think). I did change my backlite to blue though, simply by removing the needles, and the sheet the numbes are printed on, then putting celephane behind it. (this is better then globes, because your needles/redline/etc... can stay red)

AU2 S-pack Owner: Silhouette Black, XR6 Wheels, Tickford Sunroof, C2R rear bar, Checker Plate Floor Mats, Chrome Door Sills, Blue Backlite Dash, Blue Painted Brake Callipers, Advanced Extractors, Magnaflow High Flow Cat, 2.5" Stainless Steel Mandrel Bent Custom Exhaust, Genie Muffler. Sony Explode 50w x 4 deck, Kenwood 140w speakers (front and rear), Boss 1200 watt Amplifier, 12" Orion Sub in custom box. More To Come!!

Re: Changing Cluster!

not worth the money imo after doing it
although it was an interesting exercise and i do get a fair bit of interest/questions when people see the tickford wings on the cluster
