No problem with an auto cluster. Yes, the TDI tach face will cover the gear selection display.
Then you only have partial fault indication capability, if any. That single wire in the 2nd 28-pin connector is the MIL signal. To remedy, you'll have to add the MIL LED, resistors and signal wire (pin 26) to the cluster. If the PC board of the Euro cluster is pretty much the same as the NA cluster, hopefully everything will work correctly. If not, you'll have to trace the PC circuit to the desired bulb location, or add a remote LED.robertgalka said:One other thing is the Euro clusted didn't have any pins in the RH back plug. The plug just plugs in to the plastic without doing anything. There is only one one wire in that plug anyway.
That shouldn't be. Was the GLX cluster a late ('97/'98) one? I didn't have that problem (with a late cluster). There are some issues with an early A3 cluster in a TDI, but those are primarily warning light circuit mismatches. You may have had a bad GLX cluster.codeblue said:One more thing for the A3's. If you transfer the TDI face onto the GLX cluster, you HAVE to move the digital readout peice and the digital transfer film stuff (the clock and odometer displays) from the GLX face into the TDI face. Without doing this you will get garbled text on the odometer and clock.
Both clusters are 100% good and are both from 98's. I've used both of them. When I had the VR engine in the car, the MFA worked perfectly. I think I know why the text was garbled though:Chris Bell said:That shouldn't be. Was the GLX cluster a late ('97/'98) one? I didn't have that problem (with a late cluster).

Yes, and,Ltigator said:If I pull the rest of it, will it connect directly to the fuse block? Is there a way I can just splice what I have into the fuse block?
