Red face Instruments cluster fascia scratches


The plastic face of my instruments cluster is in bad condition. Looks like the previous owner clean it with an uncompatible product. Same for the plastic face of the alert lights. Is there any way I can buy a new plastic face for the instruments cluster?

Try looking for a Porsche-specific auto dismantler. They might be able to hook you up with a set in better condition. Usually give good prices, too.

Good Luck!

I have dismantled my cluster a couple of times and the plastic lenses do not pop out or are removable.

A used cluster off eBay in non-working condition that is of the same model year as yours is the way to go. They come up about once every couple of months.

The plastic is removable...................it's the biggest pain in the arse to do.

It's not hard but the dashboard is easily indentable so you need to be careful when R & R.

guys, it's much easier than that. you can pop off the entire face along with the plastic and just replace the entire piece. see photo below. BTW, the instrument cluster in the photo is FOR SALE. PM me if you want it.
