Im looking for a Brat 78-81 DL instrument cluster in good shape and I would consider a GL with tach also. I have replaced my old beat up one with it appears to be a 2wd wagon one. I need a brat one that has the 4WD light and no Rear Defroster light so please no wagon clusters. Please let me know what you have and I will need pics as well for its condition. No hurry cuase the one I got works but would like to find an original one that actually came from a brat. Thanks.......:Flame:

I know you've helped me, but i still fail at removing the dash off my BRAT.

If i can ever figure out how to do it i can send u one with a tach :P .. course at this point i seem to be making promises that i can't keep for lack of deconstruction skills. :/

Actually found one off ebay so thanks anyways. You dont have to remove the dashboard to install one at all. Just remove the steering wheel and then there about 4 screws to remove the surround bezel thats in front of the cluster and then 4 more screws that keep the cluster in place. Comes right out and just unplug the speedo plug in back along with 2 other plugs that twist out and its out. Then reverse everything and put the new one in. Its an easy fix and If I can do it, anyone can cuase I suck at this car stuff.:D takes me about 15 to 20 mins tops....
