    I'm going to perform open heart surgery on my speedo this morning and attempt to fix the ribbon cable. Does anyone happen to know the pin-outs so I can correctly apply 12v to test it on the bench when I'm done? The best I've been able to find is this VDO diagram, which I assume is a plug-in...

    Can someone validate this is an accurate representation of the wiring diag for my 91 200TDI? I have the shop manuals but color is nice and I can blow it up on the plotter. Lighting and dash is what I am most interested in now. Thanks.

The wire (#2 in the picture) runs all the way up and into the back of the tach gauge. I was under the impression that the terminal circled #1 in the picture is the...

    A few weeks back I blipped the horn, nothing but the rear fogs came on as the light in the dash came on. X-mod truck with the rotary switch in the center, headlamps two to the Left, fogs one to the right. Believe the headlamps were on at the time. Because when I apply power to wiring of rear fog...

    1987 110 2.5 TD I may have swam into the deep water... at least for electric ability. I am upgrading the center dash to td5 style, leaving the instrument panel as is. In making the move, I opted to install the new style switches. The hazard switch just sent me into a tailspin... I am...

    I have this from Rover's North: PLS557 but I don't think it's the right one. I need to go from the din plug on the passenger side above the bumper to a 5 pin flat with reverse light input. Towing a boat. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
