In Topic: How To Change Speedometer Color? Any Guide?

14 October 2012 - 05:06 PM

I have changed my cluster from green to white..almost everything including the light switches, window switches, mirror controls, the radio buttons, the temperature control and heated screen switches are now white, although the radio display remains red. Everything apart from the radio are nice to look at. I should have kept the radio button as red as white is not that clear. I have an instruction manuals for the cluster, which I suggest where you should start first. After that the rest are easy, apart from the light switches. You have to be very careful with the light switches as they are a nightmare to dismantle and put back together. I do not want to encourage you doing it but do so at your own risk as the cluster and other circuit boards requires a lot of patience and gentle handling. Therefore please do so at your own risk. I converted mine a over year ago, it gives my car a fresh look made it feel like a new car inside.

I had a split turbo boost pipe. The one the mechanic replaced with was different to the original one as they have redesigned the pipe. I know yours it's not the boost pipe itself but maybe you ought to offer the hose against the old one before you fit it, just to see if it would fit?

it's because you need to adjust the jack enough so it fits under the spare wheel..the jack ought to be in a nice diamond shape..trial and error till you get a perfect fit.

I dont know why you have to do that sort of thing Sara. Mine is a 1.6 diesel, it is different to petrol but I am more used to the lack of power at 2nd gear pulling out of a roundabout. It is an enjoyable car to drive 100k+ miles later....

I did all the conversions myself, although I noticed yours is a mk1 Focus.
