Silver NR Gauge Install
Written by: Jacob NJ October 15, 2001

Tools Needed:
Torx Screw Driver NR Gauges
Estimated time: 30 minutes

1. Take the cluster out by undoing the 2 torx screws that hold it in. The screws are going up within the cluster.
2. Once you have the cluster out, lay it face down and remove the rest of the torx screws
3. Once you have done that you will be looking at this
4. Once you see this step, pull the inside and it will pop right out. Once you get it out, lay it with the guages facing up and you will be seeing this
5. Now get to work sliding the guages in WITHOUT removing the pins. Slide them under the pins 2 at a time (when your into this you will know what i mean)
6. Line the gauges up with the current markings and tape them down with the two sided tape provided (really thin 2 sided clear tape). When you get them both in it will look like this
7. Once your all taped down and in place put it back in the casing and that will also apply pressure and hold them in place. Once you get that in you see this.
8. Now screw it all back together and put the cluster back in the car. Getting in and out of the car is the easiest step and then you get this
9. Here is another picture of the finished product!
