    Problem with my temp gauge going from 90deg to 120deg and back again the temp of the engine is normal even though it shows 120.
    This a problem in the instrument panel.

    Has anyone managed to fix it?
    Or the only solution is a change?

    Changed twice.
    Its the instrument cluster the problem.
    When I push on the blue plug at the back (the one on the left) its fine for a short time.
    I pulled the plug apart to check if the wires are attached on the pins, looks ok.
    It must be on the panel inside where all the components are soldered.
    Has anyone repaired one of these?
