    Removal of w124 Tacho

    Is the removal of the tacho dial from a w124 a straight forward process, or does the steeering wheel/engine/gearbox, or rear 2/3rds of the car need to be removed first?

Changed the cluster for a known good one, still no rev counter. So, thinking to myself, where is it fed from? Any pointers guys...

    Chrome Tacho Rings

    In order to fit chrome tacho rings to my R129 do I have to disconnect the instrument cluster? If so does this affect the trip/odometer etc.? Does anyone have any advice on this mod? Also will the chrome gearshift surround from the R170 SLK fit my car (Part no. A170 267 02 88)? Cheers

    Hi, does anybody tried to retrofit an early w203 model (2003) with a a face lift (2004) w 203 tachometer dash module? If so, is that tacho plug and play? I have bought one from ebay, it is really in mint conditions and fully operating but, as you can imagine, I'm afraid to get some damage and...

    Not sure if this goes in Electronics, engine or interior... so let me try here. I have just received my latest gadget for my W202, and on reading the instrutions, I decided that MAYBE I had no clue what they were referring too. So here goes: <connect all other wires> Connect the green...
