Then you need our Mustang instrument cluster repair service. Click if you are interested in reading how to swap a 99-00 cluster into an 01-04 car. Please contact us if you would like to participate in out beta tester program. The correct part number for the upgraded stepper motor is X25-589 Replacing the instrument cluster is an involved project because of the odometer and other electrical data issues. But the one in the middle is connected back into the dash, and had to be disconnected to get the panel out of the dash. Using a proper fluorescent paint is the only way to properly restore your gauge indicator needles.

All of this makes it virtually impossible to swap these newer clusters into 98 or older cars without a nearly complete electrical system swap. Cluster front covers from 94 through 98 are interchangeable. If any of your gauges or odometer display fail, we will repair them again. Just ordered new stepping motors and will be replacing soon.
