I imagine your best bet would be your local wrecker and just get a second hand instrument cluster and swap the whole cluster over. Shouldnt cost you 2 much as there are plenty around


Also try putting a post on xfalcon.com. Im sure someone there would have a spare cluster for an xf.

You could try your local ford dealerships but i dont like your chances. They dont have much of anything for xf's now

Got one off of Byrne ford in chermside.They told me on the phone $7.40. When i got there they charged me $10.00. I told the guy i was quoted $7.40, the old guy said "I could charge you $20.00 if you want."if i did not need thi part i would have thrown it back at him.

If it was the alternator, i think there would be other symptoms as well, lights not working properly, poor starting etc. but that,s all fine. :lol:
