Just had my cluster out and apart. The needles I got from a touran won’t fit :(

I had thought (hoped) they were all the same

What year of Touran did you get the instrument cluster needles from?
I've never known Touran needles not to have the frame.

I've got loads of red needles with the frame on if you want some to strip and paint blue?

@petrev Yes they are, tried using a magnifying stand but gave up. Need to get a pair of watchmakers glasses if I do many more but the end is in sight.
Just done the alarm led, b pillar alarm switch and changed the leds for the Audi door handle lights.

Left to do,
passenger window switch as it fell apart
Half the stereo
Instrument cluster when can sort out needles

To fit
Light switch
Door handles
Hazard switch
Alarm led
B pillar switch
Cigarette lighter

Then bathe in blue light

@doc, I don’t know the year, it had no plates on.
The problem with the framed ones is you have to unweld them to paint, didn’t realise until taking off.
How much would you like for a set?

You can have them buddy, I've got loads.
Just cover the postage.
Or buy a sticker and I'll include the needles.

Needles and stickers here
Needles painted, fitting on Thursday.
Stereo LED’s changed, fitting tonight.
Changed LED’s on hazard switch hoping it would make it a bit less red, maybe a purplish, waste of time, still very red. Oh well.

@papa bear, are those blue ones going spare?
Ill look at my caddy ones later to see if they are the small or larger ones, also a good excuse to maybe get a meet up and a beer before Boris bans more than 1.

@geoffwade65 blue needles?
I have a set for a donation to the forum.
You’ll need to put new LED’s behind them too.
A coffee would be good for me :D
