You can get a used cluster reprogrammed or swap out the gauge face from a donor cluster just like you would one a non SVT.


He's talking about the electrode luminance part, or the green back ground that glows.

It would have to be at the dealer unless you can find someone else. Some dealers will do it and some won't also, just make sure and tell them it's broken and your trying to get it fixed. Most of the time when folks go to do this they are just swapping clusters to get a tach which dealers frown on.
