They aren't that bad to put in.... just miticulus (sp?) Here is what you should do. Wait until the motor is completely cold. Then turn it on, and mark on a replica piece of paper to show where they are sitting. Be sure not to take a long time on this because you don't want that motor to get that hot... it'll change the temp gauge. Then change them out, and be careful with the little needles... those are easy to break. Then put it all back on, and again... turn on the car,... and match up the needles where they were.

after that hit and hold trip reset until you see the word check in the odometer. it'll recal the gauges. it's easy. I did the opposite. i let the truck warm up and take the readings. also don't bottom out the gauges they'll stick. be careful and take your time.

just so you know I had to cut the oem one around the warning light so it lined up. before you button it up, lay it down and turn the key on so you get your warning lights. if they don't line up just cur around that box. don't bother taking the hole thing off. turn signals too. good luck

ahhhhh those damn sticky circles don't stick worth a crap!!!! My RPM and MPH are stuck on the face gauge cause it wont stay down :finger: Oh and you know the pins that stop the needles from going all the way down well those holes were too big so I had to super glue them in so my needles would read 0.



Do you think a dab of super glue would hurt if i placed it on the sticky circle to help hold it down???:confused: :huh:


:rant: :finger: :rant: :finger:

i dont think super glue works on plastic...you need a glue that actually says plastics on the label.

Well i used super glue to hold the pegs in and double sided tape to hold the face gauge down so the needles could move properly. It's not that bad if you have the right stuff and the patience to fiddle with the needles

Thats what I thought but I had 2 pegs that wouldn't go all the way through and the other 2 did so i yanked the factory one out and pulled the pegs off and glued 2 on and the other 2 popped in place. Either way it works thats all i care about.
