Volkswagen Front Wheel Drive 1974-1989 Repair Guide

Speedometer, Tachometer and Gauges



Once the instrument cluster has been removed, the speedometer, tachometer and gauges can usually be replaced using the same basic procedure. In most cases, removal of the gauges involves disassembling the printed circuit board and front lens from the meter. The gauges are normally secured by a series of small screws or bolts. Be careful not to damage the indicator needles and gauge faces when disassembling the meter.
