E30 Cluster Repair

Postby 325is_frank » Tue Apr 14, 2015 11:26 pm

Hey guys, I am looking for a little help with repairing my cluster gears, you know the ones that don't last in the E30's . I have a 1989 325is, original owner, with a MotoMeter cluster. I tried to replace the gears but just cant seem to get it right. Does anyone know of someone in the Frederick, Md area that works on the clusters?? Actually anywhere in the DC area lol . Need a little help......

well I don't know anyone who can do it in your area, but if you'd like to take some pics I'm sure we can walk you through it successfully.

I'm supposed to be driving through Maryland twice this weekend. Plans are not set in stone yet. I've never actually done an e30 cluster yet, but if you've got good gears and we could meet up I might be able to lend a hand. If I make the trip I'll be in the Cumberland area until Sunday afternoon, then heading back to Jersey. Are you near that BP that got robbed last night?

Check your local news. A BP in Frederick, MD got robbed at 11:30 last night. http://www.your4state.com/story/d/story ... A1E4Vt70bA

I searched for your town to see if it was anywhere near where I'd be and that's the first thing I saw.

Shit son. I'm in NoVa. I can take a look at it if you bring it down. Not sure what the issue with the gear swap is. It's pretty simple.

Yeah, bring it to Yoshi. Looks like my trip through your neck of the woods this weekend might be cancelled anyway.
