Estimated Time: 1 Hour 20 Mins
Tools: TORX T10 & T15
1. Elmer's White Glue
2. Trash Bag Twist Ties
Start out by unscrewing the 2 screws that hold the display in. They are located on the top edge and use a TORX T15 screw.
Now pull the display out and twist it to the side so you can clearly see and reach the 2 cables in the back. These plugs are held in by little levers ( White & gray ) and work by swinging the lever off witch pushes the plug out. You need to push down the part of the clip that holds them in place and at the same time, swing the lever off the plug to release it. Do the first one, then you can move the display a little more to get to the second.
There should be 4 screws that hold the back plastic part on. Use a TORX T10 and remember where they go. Pull the back part and the electronics out and place them aside.
On the front side of the display, Pull out on the buttons to remove them.
Now your ready to glue the rings. I placed a napkin on the inside of the clear plastic so I wouldn’t drop glue on it. Then very lightly I placed small drops of glue on the inside of each ring and placed them inside the display. Make sure you cover all the sides and be very careful not to get glue all over the place.
I strongly recommend using Elmer’s White Glue because it dries clear and can easily be cleaned if you mess up.
The rings won’t just sit in there and dry. You need to apply pressure to get them to fit right. I used trash bad twist ties and tied the rings to the cluster housing. This worked very well but you need to make sure to place enough of them to fully apply presser on all sides.
After about an hour the glue should be dry. Now take the buttons you took off from the front side and line them up on the cluster. They have three little prongs on them that make the connections. Make sure the prong that’s by its self faces down and is under the gauge overlays. Double check to see if they feel like they work the way they should before you put everything back together. Now’s the time to clean the inside of the cluster to make sure no finger prints or glue are on the plastic.
Place the electronics and the back part on. Screw it back together and put the front buttons on. Then the plugs on the back should just push right in.
