996 gauge cluster transfer

Recommended Posts

First I would like to say hi as a new member on your forum.

I can purchase a 996 gauge cluster in the USA with a miles per hour analog and digital speed readout.

Changing the analog, miles per hour, speed readout into a kilometer per hour readout can be done rather easily but is changing the digital speed readout into a km/h readout also possible, like flipping over one or more switches on the backside of the gauge cluster. Or can't this be done at all.

Appreciate your replies

Sorry, should have enterred it on the tech question part of the forum

You have it reversed, at least on a pre 2002 cluster.

You can change the digital miles per hour to kilometers by turning to the left and holding the knob used to adjust the clock. This will also change the digital odometer and trip odometer. It will not change the analog speedometer. Also, you cannot change the trip computer displays to metric readings. Jeff
