I have followed the instruction from brunos site for fixing the capacitors...
Where do I buy the capacitors and what are they formally caled? Electrolytic, radial caps or what?


Hi folks,

I am also having troubles with my '91 535i's instrument cluster. Can you tell me the link to "Brunos site" or any other links to a knowledgebase or suggestions on how to fix the problems? My guages are dead and/or jumpy when temps are cold outside; then fuel and temp guages work okay once the car warms up, but tach and speedo still dead or giving bizarre readings.

My trip computer still works fine, so I think it must be some loose connections or bad electronics in the cluster pod.

Thank you in advance for any help!
