Need Help Replacing Instrument Gauge Cluster


Recommended Posts

My lights in the instrument cluster of my 92 ES300 are dying. :( Has anyone replaced theirs? I have seen the cluster for sale on EBay, does the dealer set the correct mileage after the new cluster is installed? Also if I wanted to install the cluster myself how do I remove the dash cover? Are there any DIY guides out there? Thanks for any help!

Hi Lex. Although I haven't worked on an ES300 before, I have repaired a lot of LS400s with dash light problems. I'm pretty sure that yours does not use the Cold Cathode Florescent Lamp technology like the LS400s do so I would not be able to repair yours. However, if you will Email me, I will Email you back the Removal and Reinstall Instructions that I have compiled for people that want to get their LS400s repaired. Those instructions should be very close to what you need to remove your instrument cluster.

I don't know if you have an electronic odometer or a mechanical one. If it's the electronic type, I have heard that Lexus will charge you at least $200 to set the proper mileage. I have also seen a web site that claims to set mileage on most cars but they wanted something like $600 to do it!

If you do decide to purchase a used one off Ebay, I would be interested in checking out your old one for you just to see how they tick. Also, if you need any electronic advice, email me.
