I am going to return to a local auto salvage yard saturday.I see cluster carcuses strewn about most times, peoplecannibalizing speedo parts. I will see if i can remove a fuel gauge safely before i attempt same on my cluster.I thought other vw models may be similar though have found differences, not with same year different models but with one or two year newer, different modelsI purchased this car  as a diesel recipient then determinedit too valuable to tear appart. It is a low mileage car and I wanted to keep the original cluster showing this mileage,other wise i would change out the entire cluster. ray> Date: Thu, 30 Aug 2007 21:26:46 -0700> From: r.c.brown at ieee.org> To: vwdiesel at vwfans.com> Subject: Re: [Vwdiesel] speedo cluster issues> > raymond greeley wrote:> > My 1986 cabrio (gasser) has several issues. the odom gear i glued at the rod end and it seems to work fine.
