    Speedo Cluster

    Think i may already know the answer... but:
    Regardless of the engine are all the clusters the same? (just differing coding).

    IE: would a petrol fit/work on a diesel or a V6 work on a 4pot etc...


    cheers all.

    v6 and i4 petrols are similar, and can be coded appropriately.

    Dervs are different though, rev counter only goes up to 5 etc.

    almost completely dead DIS (the ribbon cable has gone) and a juddery speedo motion. found the replacement kit for the LCD at 80+, and i have SMD/t-bar soldering kit at work. but found second hand clusters between 30-60 (i can change the mileage/prog immo/code with the software collection i have)

    Thoughts?

    Shame you didn't see this - Group Buy for DIS cluster repairs on AudiSRS

    38 of us just got a Group Buy for 109 + p&p for the DIS repair. If you can do the work yourself, Tektronics sell the replacement screens for 50.
    Is the juddery speedo motion definitely the cluster and not the speed sensor?
    Mo power, mo problems

    juddery speedo could be the needle pushed on too far?
