I have been told that I need a new instrument cluster. Before I spend the $600 I have nothing to lose by trying to fix the old one. In order to do this I need to separate the PCB from the dial part.
Firstly, once inside the instrument cluster, how do I remove the dial needles? I have tried gently pulling on them but to no avail. This must be quite simple and I am sure many of you have removed them to put white dials in.
Secondly, if I do end up having to buy a new cluster the dealser said that it has to be coded to the car. Now the milage and service interval are stored on the main CPU, everything else just resets itsself. This being the case what is to code?
