Main cable disconnect on meter unit

1485 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Topaz
Searched the forum, online and manual and can't see any guidelines for removing the main cable to the meter unit / cluster / speedometer. I needed to replace the cluster console / dash fairing and this is stopping me. Don't want to just yank it! 馃槵

Hard to believe no one seems to be able to help you with this. There must be someone on here who has done this??
My best guess is that you'd need to gently pry the rubber boot away, to hopefully reveal how the plug is attached to the cluster's socket. Maybe/likely has some kind of latch/locking tab, or something like that.
If you have the new cluster, couldn't you tell how the plug attaches by looking at the socket? Maybe post a picture of the cluster's socket?

You were correct. The rubber boot doesn't appear to want to move, you have to really dig on it around the edges with a flat nose. Under is a connector that this fiddley but just needs a good yank.

Thanks for replying.

Hey all as I鈥檓 going through this as we speak here you go, correct advise as above remove the rubber housing with a flat head or trim tool just slips out and then one small clip and it lets go. Hope this helps.
