Was stuffing around with the dash and a few other bits this evening and I noticed all the connectors at the back of the rear dimister and the plastic fill peice where the trip computer/clock would be in higher models.

My question is, can I simply purchase a replacement trip computer or clock for an EL falcon and plug the wiring block into it?

This wiring block is not being used at all at the moment, its just in a plastic holder and has a dozen or so wires running into it.

Also, barring Ford themselves, anyone know where I could pick up a replacement trip computer or clock and a rough price?

Cheers

Jono

I take it you've got a GLi? If so a clock will plug straight in, a trip comp will require some rewiring as per the doco posted by Interceptor.
