    cant the display be disconnected from the rear?

    there are 3 connecters on the back one of them must be for the display, and im guessing it would be the centre one as it the nearest to it

    i have pulled the fuse out which turns off the leds but it also turns dash lights and the mileage as well do you think this could cause problems ?

    i am hopefully going to get another instrument cluster next week would this just plug in and work ok until i find someone with VAGCOM to change the mileage ?

    yes you can but you will have to get mileage alterted especially if the mileage on the new clocks is less than the one you have now.

    otherwise the mileage wont tally up with the mileage on your M.O.Ts and service history.

    and would make selling your car difficult and also ilega as milegae would be fraud

    you can only change the mileage on a cluster with Vag-Com if the mileage is less than 100 miles so driving with the new cluster in might not be a good idea, if you go over the magic ton you're fecked. so saying that there are specialists out there who can change the mileage but they use specific software to do it and it'll cost you.

    Forgive me if im being stupid, but why can't you just change the DIS screen from the new clocks and keep the rest of your cluster

    Thats what i aim to do, but the soldering skills required to swap them over is beyond me, i will pay someone to swap them over when i swap the engines,should save taking her off the road twice then

    any idea how much it will cost to get the mileage changed ? changing just the screen looks a big job !

    changing the screen has been discussed many times on several forums and the opinion is it's not worth the hassle because of the soldering skill required

    they say this unit does not require any decoding, may be give them a call to make sure it will work with your car?
