  • disaster !!

    so i have been busy theses last couple of months on other projects , which necessitated using the insignia as a van ! and being parked in a yard, so cleaning weekly was a pointless task, anyway i have now finished and decided to do a detail inside and out , so couple of days ago while warm weather was here i water vacuumed seats. carpets , boot , all looking good conditioned leather , started to wipe dash, with micro fibre then the instrument binical , then this fecking happened !!
    feck me
    so any one taken a cluster out of a B yet, any instructions anywere, bet you cant buy just glass (Perspex) from vauxhall

    Oooh burger! I wonder if standard clocks have the same perspex screen? Might be a cheaper option.

      Actually are these the standard b clocks, looks like they might share the same screen, https://images.app.goo.gl/yHLvww8tiyrWgpFa7

          Probably the same way as it came in
          joke a side, logical thinking, taking the trim off and the unbolt it, like on the A
          probably something like this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSzlPXsWK4c&t=32s

              Its a little pain in the Butt, on my A, i got the tech. to do it, I only paid him for 1 hour, that was for removing both speedo and HMI and replace it with a new HMI and digital speedo, so if it was me, I would pay a tech to fix it, might be the same cost as new trim will cost, if you break it

                You have the same as me Dean, the digital cluster, but I was just referring to the clear perspex cover, it looks the same, probably get a standard cluster cheaper and just swap the screen over? Only thing is some look like they have individual screens but this one looks like it's a one piece perspex cover.
