Anyone has this kind of Euro Gauge Housing? *Pics*



I've bought these off ebay because my original gauge cluster plastic cover thingy cracked.

Anyone has them? Can you please post pics and know-how to install it?

because it won't really fit right..
i was expecting this as all these "euro" stuff doesn't really fit well..
but damn. this one is trippy.. because it seems like it could fit perfectly.. it might need some modification.. i dont want to damage it before i could install it right..

please help..

it doesn't fit for the V6 gauge cluster, it is for the 4-cyl model. You'll have to cut and drill to make it fit.

I have that installed in my 5th gen V6. Yah i thought it didn't fit also, but this is what you will have to do.

The clear plastic gauge cover has to be removed from the surrounding housing. If you understand what im talking about, thats what you have to do.

I have no pics, and i don't want to rip apart my interior to take pics, so.

no thats 5th gen. ours will not fit that way. trust me.

my car's interior[gauge section] is currently stripped. I've tried side ways, from the back and from the top, and it does not fit.

Since no one tried yet, im going to modify it my self and try it. I'll post some pics.

Sorry just saw this thread. I got mine last year, and played around with it for like 20 mins, trust me eventually it fits right, if you get it in at the right angle.

maybe you have different version one. but if anyone gets the same one I have, YOU WILL need modification.
there is no way you can fit these without some cutting involved. because two pieces sticking out at the bottom of the gauge housing is a big problem. You can make it fit by lowering your whole gauge housing, but that'll cause whole needles to stick as housing isn't big at all, unless you fit it perfectly.

post some pics of yours, maybe you were the member with black interior and gauge housing i saw. was it you?
cause i decided to go for this because it lookd really good in that car.
