For the best possible repair of an instrument cluster on a VW T25/Vanagon, it is unfortunately no longer enough to simply replace a few wires or strips. Because most of the time the film is already badly damaged and torn several times, so that a sensible repair is no longer possible.
In most cases, only a complete replacement of the film will help. Unfortunately, these are no longer available new and what is available used is already about 30 years old.
There are also different versions of the film. With or without analog clock or even with digital clock. For diesel or gasoline engines.
For this reason I had decided to create an alternative here.
Due to the enormous feedback and with the striving for a still better and simpler solution, I developed the tacho board again further.
In the meantime the tacho board is already available in the 3rd generation but still with the same goal.
Here are a few impressions about my development.
So the disadvantages of the last variant have been eliminated….
Even if you don’t know how to solder, it is now possible to swap the speedo foil for my speedo board. Because now every component on the board is already prefabricated.
Also now includes a matching prefabricated wire harness.
Now, unfortunately, there’s still a bit of a “but”….
Because this is still a kit. For the installation you need some technical understanding. If you’re not sure, ask someone in the know for help. I can’t hold hands on the remodel.
The complete kit is available here in my shop and at VW Bulli Parts.
Still not convinced? Then you can have a look at the documentation here. I have taken great pains to document everything, down to the smallest detail.
This set will be available in my shop soon.
But please note the delivery times. If you’re really in a hurry, feel free to check out my partners as well.
