Removal and installation of instrument cluster

Note: The instrument cluster is held in cutout by means of a rubber profile strip.

For pulling out instrument cluster, the instrument panel can be slightly raised above cluster or pushed out from below. To prevent any damage of front frame, do not force out instrument cluster by means of a screwdriver or the like.

Removal

1 Remove steering wheel.
2 Pull out instrument cluster as far as possible, loosen tachometer shaft, the two electric plug connections and the oil pressure line, then remove instrument cluster.

Installation

3 For installation proceed vice versa.

Note: When connecting tachometer, make sure that the tachometer shaft is not bent too much, since this might cause running noises.

Goood luck
