1972 280se 4.5 Hood pad? Instrument cluster noise
Hello all. Thank goodness for this forum!! Anyway, can anyone recommend a good hood insulation pad source for a 1972 280se 4.5? I see a few but was wondering if anyone had any recommendations?
My odometer was intermittent for a while and just stopped working. Sometimes I hear a rattling noise coming from the instrument cluster. Could this be the odometer cable spinning inside there? I have yet to take on the daunting task(so I've read) of taking the instrument cluster apart to check inside. Anyone know how to get in there? Is is as painful as they say?
Thanks for the help guys.
p.s. Check out the picture I took driving my 280se 4.5 last week. I think it looks iconic!
