Gauge Faces Replacement


Recommended Posts

I ordered some New Gauge Faces for my 1999 Porsche Boxster. Aluminum and a set of Aluminum Gauge Bezels. The Bezels are straight forward. No I didn't put them on yet.

I'de like to ask if anyone knows the right procedure for removing the Gauge faces? I don't want to mess things up by pulling and hacking away on them.

Also this has been the most informative site on Boxsters so far. :clapping:

Instructions on how to remove the instrument cluster and take it apart have been posted here several times. Search.

Henry did the exact same thing on his 2000. Perhaps if he has any tricks on the needles and he sees this he will give you a hand.

A big Thanks to Tool Pants. :clapping: Sorry if I didn't find it. I'll look some more. You can delete this if it's out of place. :)

Can you give a poor soul a point in the right direction. I couldn't find anything on how to pull the instrument cluster out. :(

3. Choose All Forums in the drop down list.

Lots of info here... :D

Thanks everyone the job was completed successfully. :clapping:

Being a first timer doing this I took my time. Lets say three hours this time. I also put the gauge cluster back in "not fully assembled to get set the needles right". If I ever have to do it again it would probably only take about an hour and a half.

Hi - I too have searched several time with no luck. I've used every combo of criteria too - any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

:(

I used the word Kluster as a joke.

You test the needle position before you put the cluster back together. Ignore the air bag out in the picture as Ray also replaced his 4 spoke steering wheel with a 3 spoke at the same time as the face replacement. We needed an air bag hooked up when the ignition was turned on to test the needle position.
