Thanks so much for the great instructions and comments by others. Note When Removing Installing Special Instructions The History of Porsche Cars through its generational changes. Has anyone found a product to wipe them with to remove prints? You can test the operation of the unit using a hand drill in the calibration procedure described below. Place the washer on the end of the odo tumbler shaft the end where the 100,000 tumbler is as shown. I fixed everything on mine speedo still does not work doing something like this. The torque produced is a function of several things, but primarily the velocity of the magnet and the flux produced by the magnet. Disconnect both of these by grasping the ends of the connector and rocking the connector side to side while pulling down.
My terminology may not be correct, and due to this, if this is used please feel free to correct it as needed. Come to think of it we talked a while back about parts. And neither the tripometer nor the odometer would advance in mileage. Carefully squeeze the wheel at the points shown in , until the inside become slightly oval. After you amaze yourself with that polish the taillight lenses.
Fortunately, I had a good idea of exactly how many miles were missing due to the failed odometer. Although there are many different types of these gauges, this article will attempt to be as broad as possible, in the hope that much of the information and pictures provided can be used on many gauges from many different cars. The right hand one is shown in Picture 4 Picture 4 Remove the turn signal switch by loosening the 5mm bolt in its clamp on the steering column housing and unplug the white plastic plugs on the back of the switch. Then, move the pod slightly forward enough to get behind it and disconnect the third and final harness lead. There is a calibration screw underneath the voltmeter face plate, It is probably most helpful to calibrate one point on the voltmeter. I have some suggestions that should improve the article.
Hence, current travels from the ignition switch through the light and terminates at the regulator. I have an old 2002 Boxster cluster; on that one there is a definite stop, which you can feel on the lower postion of the needle, however on the 1999 one I feel none; because of the plastic arch it stops the needle from going down even more; since there is no needle stop on the dial; the stop is incorporated into the steppermotor, I think Anyway I'll see what I can do! Install a washer on the tumbler shaft. Then when reinstalling give it a quick tap with a small hammer or socket to get it to seat. The trip reset button works so well I sometimes just tap out a rythmic beat with it but this phase will probably pass. The glass portion of the bulb is physically bigger than the previous bulb.
Start the stop watch and carefully watch the trip meter. By leaving the nut on the column, it will act as a safety stop when you pull the steering wheel off the column and keep the steering wheel from hitting you in the face. When the teeth age, they may become brittle or stuck. The only thing that you need to remove to perform the odometer repair is the odometer drive shaft. If it rotates then proceed.
After removing all of the face plate screws, turn the instrument cluster over so gauges are facing up and lift off the face plate. Before removing the face plate and needle, make special note of where the speedometer needle is oriented on the face plate. So is there an adj on the gauge to zero it. One way to prevent this is to check to make sure everything works correctly after you finish a particular step. I've included both options in this post. August 4, 2017 Followup from the Pelican Staff: pelican parts only sells replacement parts. The book contains 240 pages of full color projects detailing everything from performance mods to changing your brake pads.
Can anyone shed some light for me. The film on the back of the instrument cluster is dry and brittle. The outside gear will have 20 teeth but the inside gear can have either 21 or 22. These can be cleaned with minimal scratching and they look much better in general. I have liminated the sending unit since the Tact works and they work off the same feed.
You can place some glue on the inside of the gear, and hope that it will be enough to hold the gear. To prevent loss of the clip, I cupped my hand over the gear while prying. I do have one question. Since I didn't know exactly how much of a gap I needed to address, I purchased a few different types of small thin washers expecting one would be about right. Does anyone know how i can get a new one of these. I was able to repair the Odometer in my '74 914 in about a half an hour using this write up.
I have already done the odometer repair but still have little or no speedo on the bench test. Push the odometer driveshaft back into the housing and through the pot metal gear. The symptom would repeat at each startup and then the system would charge normally. It still shows the correct amount of fuel with the igntion on. You'll want to re-install the needle later in the exact same position. Depending upon your gauge type and car, the mounting of the clear face may differ.
Then, before setting the pod in place, re-attach the rear wiring harness to the cluster connector. See Picture 5 for a view of the turn signal switch removed. These rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise then pull up and out. Easy Installation: The switch uses a stainless steel radiator probe that inserts within the fins of your radiator. First you will need to remove the pod in order to remove the instrumentation cluster. Maybe we can get into long boring diatribes about who can replace that gear the quickest? Find out how to repair that with this useful guide.
