Hey guys,

I am nearly ready to upgrade my tacho from this to a blue version.



I got a second hand one, non-canbus, for a ACV engine as suggested here: http://www.vwt4forum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=86937
And it should be fine for my 1998 non-canbus van.

I found the cables here: http://www.kufatec.de/

Is it difficult to replace it yourself?

Where should I plug the cable (opposite side than the tacho)? Is it easy to reach?

Any other problem I might encounter?

The cluster loom (or cable as you put it) will plug into the fusebox in place of the existing one. Shouldn't be too tricky but be aware there is a slide on the fusebox which locks all the connectors in place, this needs moving before you try yanking plugs off.

Cheers LawAnderson, I'll buy this wiring on purpuse because mine and the needed one are different. Do you think that I'll need to customise it anyway?

@soconnor

got it more than a month ago, I'll take and post some pictures of what I got tonight.

I have all things to install the new tacho, but did not have time to install it yet! I'll probably install it in October.

I'll keep you posted!

Cool thanks! I have the blue clocks, hopefully the right ones, fitting them is the next job and this looks like an easier route than a lot of re-wiring

Hopefully works out!
