another cluster question


Recommended Posts

i have been looking at clusters and have noticed that on the rear sticker there is type US and type ROW. so i can get a clear understanding as i have heard from someone that the plugs on the rear of the US are different to ROW. is that a myth or do i start looking into europe for my parts..........

also i have found a few 996 c2 cluster that were from 6 speed 996 is this an issue as my 986 is 5 speed or it doesnt have any bearing at all

I would imagine a US cluster would be in mph and a Oz cluster would be in kph. So there would definitely be a cosmetic difference at least.

The car is sold around the world. So the clusters are not all the same. Even in North America there is a USA and Canada cluster. Canada is metric and we are still in the dark ages.

It is not the plug or wiring. It is the electronics inside the cluster and the gauge faces. I can put a metric cluster in my US car.

The cluster does not know if it is for a 5 or 6 speed manual transmission, unless you get into the AWD cars. A triptronic cluster however is different because it has the gear indicators. And keep in mind the new style cluster like is on your model year 2004 went into production in 2001, and in 2002 on the 996. The original style cluster will not work on a car made for the new style. Then there there might be the MOST issue for a 2003-2004.

We have the part list for the world so if you see one you are interested in we might be able to look it up.
