Hi - The inside of the glass on my rev counter and speedo needs a clean.
Can someone tell me how I can get to it please?
I am assuming as people upgrade with white dials then it is achievable.

Kind regards,

James.

Hand James.

You've been around long enough to know where the 'Search Forum' function is.

eg. The last post on this thread should be of help.

Right just tried to take out the rev counter and it get's blocked by the steering wheel cowl. It look's like you either have to seriously manhandle it which would no doubt result in damage for me...or remove the cowl which from searching means removal of the steering wheel...so I have decided to leave it for now.

Thank you for the links which I have now saved in case I attempt it at a later date.

You can remove the cowl without removing the wheel. Ive done it a while back to change bulbs in the rev counter. I also removed the glass from the speedo to clean it. The bezel on the dials is crimped on the back which holds the glass in place and just needs gently bending back so it can be removed. Of course the rev counter needs a bit of levering with a plastic trim removal tool or a blunt instrument to get it out of the dash.

It is not easy to take out the tachometer, but indeed doable. I have removed many tenths of these, and never had to remove any of the steering columnt covers.
Beware, do not pull too hard on the instrument ring, the plastic housing will break and you will pull apart the instrument. Also, do not bend or use much force on the plastic housing in general.

The trick is soap water and a bit of patience. Here's a DIY explanation on this:

Thanks Tore..I'll give it another go with some soapy water...I had visions of me completely buggering it up! I mentioned what I was doing to my wife, I know fatel, and she said just don't break anything! Then reminded me of the damage I caused 20 years ago whilst trying to replace my exhaust on my old Golf.
