    I'm going to have a good look at this. It won't be the end of the world if I get it wrong as I know a lad that works at a BMW breakers. Sourcing a replacement cluster shouldn't be too difficult or expensive

    I agree, if you have a steady enough hand you will be able to do it,just take your time.

    Steady hand

    Perhaps I should let somebody else do it then

    I'll have a look and see what happens. Thanks for that fix, I have bookmarked it for future reference

    Tell you what else will do it. Some solder flux and a heat gun...come on Rym, surely you can do that

    Oh I'm confident soldering

    I don't have a very steady hand though, I'll give it a go myself first though

    If I mess it up then at least I can pull the clocks from the coupe until I get a replacement set

    Don't forget that if you change them the mileage will be wrong.

    It's wrong anyway

    I replaced the engine and there was no record of mileage for it

    It's a BMW, I'm not worried about mileage

    That's fair enough then. Good luck with the repair.
