WTB: w126 Instrument Cluster ca 1990

Looking for a MINT, working instrument cluster for my 1990 300SEL. Mine works, but the faces have become bubbled from the Florida heat after sitting in a warehouse for 8 years. Also, the trim around the cluster isn't any good, so I'd like a complete cluster. PM me.

Thanks!

You may try posting this in the W126 section, it has it's own buy/sell thread.

The only clusters I have are all for 560SEL/560SEC and would not work in a 300SEL.

Thanks, will do.

What clusters will fit my 300SEL? Is it 300 only or will 420 fit?

I know the 560 is definitely out. The 420 I am not sure about but I do not think it will fit either.

You will want to find a cluster from your exact model otherwise the speedometer would not be correct and it may not give you an accurate fuel gauge reading as well as the tachometer may not read correctly.

They all look visually similar but there are differences that are different enough to be a major concern.

I have a instrument cluster from a 420 SEL if that would work for your 300 SEL...

Unfortunately is has to be from a 300SE/30SEl as the tach and speedo are different.

Thanks!
