    Instrument cluster

    Any suggestions on replacing? Anyone have a good example for sale? Mine has the whit pitting on the black areas. Everything works just want to freshen up. Thank you.

    If you just need a new housing, a cluster from any late 124 will work, then swap in your E500E gauge trio.

    If the gauge faces are pitted... that's a different story.

    Re: Instrument cluster

    I did this last weekend. I also had a little bit of "dandruff". Not much but it was nice to swap it out. While you are taking the cluster out also consider whether you want to put in new bulbs or do an LED conversion. I also changed my potentiometer because mine was kind of twitchy. Removing the cluster is pretty easy if you have the tools. I bought a set from board member SG Motorsports which also included a tool to remove the ignition lock cylinder. That's another good thing to replace if yours is still original.

    Thank you both. Gauges are good cosmetic only. I will stick with original bulbs no led for me.
