Sorry about the late reply, i just swapped the complete unit over so did not unclip the screen, just removed the two connections at the back and gently levered it off, hope this helps.

Hi,

do you have any before & after photos of the cluster? how about the RPM readings after, is it accurate (8000 vs 9000 inlay for the typeR)?

thanks!

If the instrument panel is replaced, I assume the existing mileage remains in place. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks for the how to and the pics.

Iíve just bought a new visor. How easy is it to unclip the original and replace with the new? Do I need to remove the mph dial as an example?
