Hi, does anyone have a set of diagrams or intructions for the removal of a VT HSV or the like dash ? I need to replace my fuel guage, but have a complete new unit. I see all these places that have white dials etc. but are reluctant to give me a set of instructions.
Have a look in the forum specific to VT Commodores, You'll more than likely find something in there.
I was going to write instructions but then I found this for you which would make more sense than what I would write anyway and its got pics. VT instrument cluster removal site
Julie, You are a legend, I owe you a beer if I ever meet you, or two. Exactly what I was looking for.
Just one thing, does the climate control and the like come off with the dash facia ? DO you just unplug them at the back ? Where can I get a stereo removal tool ?
I posted the info about the climate control in the VT section.
The head unit info can be found here
Any panels behind the dash facia remove very easily by unplugging them.
You dont need a stereo removal tool, just get a coat hanger, cut two equal lengths and fold them into U shapes. insert them into the holes on the side of the head unit and push in til you feel them sort of click in. Then slighty twist the coat hanger wire and pull the unit out.
ITs very easy.!@!
