    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    You still need a BCM. The BCM is what controls the mileage among other things in the cluster.

    From the first thread:

And if i recall correctly the wiring harness that clips into the back of the cluster is bigger on a second gen.
    Edit: honestly im not sure if changing all the bcm stuff would work. I know that there a lot of differances between the interior electronics between second and third gen such as the din differance and the HVAC controlls. the only thing i could think of doing is scanning in the torrent face and printing your own custom gauge faces using the templates found here: http://www.sixthsphere.com/phpBB3/vi...hp?f=3&t=40282

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    Blue Needle attempt #1... Looks good so far.







    I very carefully separated the black housings from the clear part with an All. Then I took my handy dandy Lacquer Thinner and a paper towel and wiped off the red.Then I took the transparent blue vinyl tint I had laying around from my "cheap blue faced cluster" attempt and gave it two layers.

    Now, to keep the light from bleeding out the back, I have two ideas... Whiteout is one, but i'm having problems with it. Its not applying evenly to the back of the needle to make the smooth backing i need. I was also suggested white electrical tape but i dont have any of that to try. Last idea is white primer paint.

    these are not the ones im going to use in the car. Ive beat them up fairly good screwing around trying different things. Im just trying to get the prossess down so when I go to do my real needles it should go smooth and correctly.

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    Get whiteout that comes in the container and has a twist off cap, it uses a brush. Then you simply "paint" on the white out. Cause if your using the whiteout pen it's going to come out unevenly. I think that should work.

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    Hmmm interesting, I thought that might have been a viable way.

    Painting it might work with a very fine brush.

    Very nice, Chris. Looks well done! Can't wait to see it on the final product now that you've tested it.

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    well bad news....

    When I tried to remove the needles tonight I was able to get the fuel gauge removed successfully. Damn things did NOT want to come off. Then I got to the speedometer and the post the needle rids on snapped flush on the needle and the motor/servo it runs on.

    So fuck it. If anyone wants 3.5 needles they can let me know lol. In the meantime I am going for the Equinox cluster with the Torrent clear cluster face (its got chrome surrounds for each gauge [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif[/img] ).

    So yeah I was hoping that the cluster used red bulbs, then it got here and I discovered it didn't, and that the face had some sort of red behind it. This lead me to my moment of FAIL. But I took the rest of the needles off without a hitch.

    I used a plaster putty knife to aid in the removal of the face. After that you could clearly see the red... and you cannot remove it, its integrated with that face, and it has a white layer behind that in some places (sort of like how the needles work). Basically, the Torrent cluster is a red only cluster. Unless someone finds a way, I believe it can only be red.

    I'm sorry to hear that your experiment failed. In my opinion the red is superb on the eyes at night and everyone that has seen 'em likes them. Blue is just a hype.

    sure, gimme a min. I'll snap the whole thing on, it's not that hard to take it off again later. I'm going to put them in the post I have about mine specifically, I don't want to clutter this one up much.

    EDIT: pics are up. any updates and other requests for photo's will go there. This tread should be cleaned to facts on 2g and 3g swap details and pics then stickied [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/wink.gif[/img]

    I dont know how many times i have to repeat myself... you dont loose your mileage of your car swapping between any of these clusters in a third gen car. I have had four different clusters in my car and my mileage has never changed. It is stored on you BCM.

    This thread is meant to show options you have in swapping and pics of what each one looks like installed and the different things we have done to them (IE my leds and custom blue needles).
