As above, i have a plain ol' EF Fairmont, but the back of the cluster has a sticker saying 'VDO Fairmont Ghia'

Is this normal?

i wouldn't consider it 'ghia' labelling

they're identical clusters, so all the stickers might have Fairmont Ghia stamped on them, rather than printing ones with just Fairmont - i can't remember what the std fairmont ones say, but its nothing to get excited about!

i don't think the fact you've found a sticker would make that T easier to see at all! :lol:

My guess is when it was being built they stuck in that cluster as they ran out of the ones labeld diff so as they are the same and its only a sticker same s**t to them on the line.

or its been replaced

I have a Fairmont cluster labelled 'Ghia Fairmont'. I suspect the labelling reflects the idiot lights that are fitted. Maybe.

Cheers,
