Hey all,

I managed to grab an 04 USDM STi cluster to swap into my '02 wrx. Lemme lay down the good and the bad


- Bought it for $90 bucks

- Everything but the tach works properly


- The tach doesn't work properly.

The person who I bought the cluster from had installed an aftermarket ECU in the vehicle, which then got a short. The short caused, I assume, this to happen. My tach was working on my USDM 2002 impreza cluster so I KNOW the tach readings are good from my end.

Here's a video to show you what I'm talking about:


-Taken apart the cluster UP UNTIL taking out the tachometer potemeter. I took the glass shield off and played with the needle a little bit after I got frustrated trying to find a loose wire or something. No obvious burnouts.

Can I just get a new pot or whatever is the tach mechanism and plug it into the cluster? Thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance guys!
