In Reply to: Installing instrument cluster posted by Nadeem on April 27, 2000 at 13:27:07:

I forgot that the mileage information would have to be moved to the new part... is that something that BMW does with a computer or what?

: I took my '95 M3 to the BMW dealership to get it checked out, since all of the gauges (speed, tach., fuel, mpg, temp.) were acting funny (either going to 0 while driving or being off by 10mph, 500 rpm, etc.).
: They told me that they removed the instrument cluster and hooked it up to a diagnostic computer that showed it was failing and would need to be replaced. They said the new part was $480 and the labor would be $220. I may be able to find the instrument cluster for a cheaper price, but what I am wondering is how easy it is to remove the current instruments guage unti and install the new one my self? I see two screws at the top of the unit.. is it as easy as unscrewing those screws and disconnecting it from behind?

: The link i have here describes how to remove the unit, and it makes it sound really easy.

: Thanks,
: Nadeem
