e30 cluster help
One more step towards driveability...
I'm trying to reinstall the cluster in the E30 cab, after changing the SI board batteries (fingers crossed). At some point in the car's history, someone hacked up the cluster trim and completely messed it up (lost some screws, used some longer ones and broke the SI board housing.
However, I can't seem to fit the cluster back in. On the driver's side, there appears to be a metal tube of some kind which prevents the cluster from reaching the necessary position (where the screws would line up). I've wrestled with it for three hours, to no avail. Is there something I'm missing here?
