Hi all,

Just received a sports cluster for my EB (II with smartlock), my falcon has 186,000 and my new cluster has 383,000. Is there a way to move the reading back to match my original?

Thanks again for any help,
Alan.

Does the EBII need the EEPROM change over like teh EFs do or does it just need the KM wound back? I knwo EFs need a computer chip changed over, not sure about EBIIs though.

According to the tutorial elsewhere on the site I think only the "high" (digital) cluster needs an eprom reprogrammed, the "mid" (sports) cluster doesn't. But it doesn't tell you how to change the reading.

I can understand why this info would be a little sensitive though, my reasons to change the reading are legit however.

Alan.

PS I have realized this thread is in the wrong forum, should be in the "interior" section. Mod's?

i rolled mine back when i got then new cluster in.

u have to take the whole thing apart then slide the long pin out on one side (the pin that holds the little cogs) then u can freely move the odometer reading

Is this operation reasonably easy or is it easy to f#*k the whole cluster up?

Thanks in advance btw.
