Thanks!!! I lucked up on a 2001 325 Instrument cluster on ebay for $32 +$13.95 I made the swap with a note to add.

#1 REMOVE THE CONNECTORS CORRECTLY DON'T PRY THE CLASPS. I snapped the claps on one of the connectors when trying to pull the cluster out of the dash. PRESS the small raised portion in front of the clasp and slide the clasp down. I will try post pictures later.

The connector can seat securely without the clasp. What happens if you put only half of the clasp on is the windshield washer fluid light being stuck on and the OBC mode selector (push button on the turn signal arm) being disabled. So the only LCD info displayed was miles, trip meter, and time.

I crazy glued the clasp back together and I will try to put it back on to keep the cluster secured at a later date.
