Changed the ignition lock, lost digital speedo

Recommended Posts

I just changed my ignition lock and happened to lose the digital speedo in the middle. Also, there are a few other things I want to fix. First, I have a bird in my window, its squeaks, clutch pedal sounds like a wooden door, and the unlocking and locking of the car sound like my car has loaded twin AK-47 and is ready to shoot. Attached are the pictures and videos of the problems mentioned. Can anyone help me resolve this issues?

Windows Squeak,
Door Lock, and the clutch pedal,

Changing the ignition switch is likely a coincidence.

DO a search here for how to replace the backlight bulbs in the instrument cluster

On the window squeak you need to see if it is the rubber that touches glass or the window itself. If it is the rubber "wiper" on the glass then you can try cleaning it. If it is the window itself then you likely need a new window regulator.

Door locks sound normal to me. Maybe a bit louder than my coupe - but you car is a convertible.

Try a small amount of silicone spray or grease on the pedal rotation shaft. Sometimes they just wear out and need to be replaced.
