Hi, I'm a poster on the 126 forum. My dad has a '88 560 sl. The silver cap on above the economy gauge fell off. How do I get into there so i can glue it back on? Does it involve removing the dash? Or can I just take off the plastic? Would it be easier to just break the plastic and then stick a new piece of plastic in (if they are cheap)?

thanks,

Sebastian

Silver Cap

I'm in the process of putting my instrument cluster back in after having the speedometer/odometer rebuilt.

Pull the steering wheel off - two hex bolts on backside of steering wheel (this wasn't in the manual). This allows you to remove the center pad and access the phillips screw holding the steering wheel on. Then pull the instrument cluster out - it's just held in by a pressure fit. You can then get to the area you want fairly easy by removing the printed circuit boards.

Hope this helps
