G'Day, Ive spent hours searching through forum topics looking for info on how to put na AU11 XR8 Dash into an AU11 Forte. I know it has been done and documented, but I cant find it. I did find a good guide in 'resources' but it is just for the AU1. Is there a similar one for the AU11?

Papa Smurf, Thanks for the welcome and the reply.
This is the guide that I found in 'resources' but it states

"Please Note : At Present the Wiring information is only applicable to the AU Series I Model Falcons.
The AUII and AUIII Series have entirely different wiring when compared to the AUI Models

And I have been unable to find the next guide that relates to AU11's. Next one I found is for BA's
But thanks again anyway

Ok...so you are saying that the AU1 directions also worked on a BF Ute?

Hi Dave... id say the instruction wont work on a b series, jet ute did own a AU...
this is a photo of the correct pins remove from AU3 Forte Dash loom and about to be plugged into a AU3 Fairmont Ghia Cluster, The au1 instructions are fine but one wire isnt the same colour in AU2/3 as it is AU1 but pin locations are all the same, The pin numbers are a bit confusing, they refer to both plugs so pin 1 to 6 and 23 to 28 are on the first plug and pin 7 to 22 are on the other...(in a U shape)

# 1. The Park Lamp Dial (+ Positive) Illumination needs to be moved from Pin 13 to Pin 2.
# 2. The Dial Negative Dimmer Illumination needs to be moved from Pin 21 to Pin 3.
# 3. The ABS Warning Lamp Wire needs to be moved from Pin 8 to Pin 23
# 4. The R.H. Side Indicator wire needs to be moved from Pin 19 to Pin 26

now you will only have one plug, i used a small flatblade screw drive to push the pins out of the plug, then took the photo, i squeezed the end of the pin a bit to make the hole a bit smaller, then just plugged them into the cluster

let us know how you go :D

Cheers Cam
