    The instrument cluster is coded to the car with the VIN number installed, unfortunately a second hand one can't be fitted OR programmed to fit by the dealers

    Haven spoke to another Auto electrician yesterday he said "I expect someone somewhere can get round it and code a cluster for your car but it's finding that person ",

    He also said he has headaches galore now as so many new cars need more expensive diagnostic equipment so you can look further into problems and code items e.t.c

    But otherwise unless you can find someone "technical" enough it will be a new cluster
