The gauge clusters in question:

Auto - '97 OBW (2.5 with winter package if that matters)
Manual - '96 OBW (2.2 without winter package if that matters)

I want to know if they are interchangeable, ie does the manual cluster have the AT temp light? That would be the only difference correct?

Thanks!

what year did they switch to the Hall effect speed 0 sensor,
that the 97 uses,
verses the cable driven one?


Gloyale is correct as far as the 97's go,
my 97 does not have a shift indicator

The clusters are completely interchangable, the light socket is there, you just need to put a bulb in before you put the cluster in. IIRC there is a light on the mt cluster that is un-needed for AT so just grab that one. The speedo might need to be swapped. The 96 goes to 140 and the 97 only goes to 120. I dont remember if the speed sensors were different or if the difference is in the speedo head alone.
