I've resurected this thread because I want to know if I can get the part number for some of the bulbs that don't appear in the text.

I have an 86, and the PRND32 bulbs are on the right side of the display. I know that these are solder in bulbs of about 1 watt, but it would really help if some knows a vendor number before I have the pod apart.

I also would like to redo the instrument cluster lamps with incandescent ones that are either red, or have the red cover. I can get stock white bulbs, but would need the little red covers.

Please don't bother with the advice on LED replacement, as I already have that info, I would like the PN for the PRND32 bulb, and the red cover for the instrument cluster illumination bulb. Thanks.

For a buddy's 88, I used Radio Shack 272-1154 as others have before. It worked very well.

if your going to take the time to remove the instruments to get to the bulbs i would suggest that all of the bulbs be replaced although park and drive usually see the most use

Reasonable suggestion. Have you actually done it? :) One was enough for me.

Mrmerlin 09-30-2009 10:24 PM

Yes I replaced all of the ones in the Yellow car and that was the only one that i have done or rather have had to do.
Once I saw the amount of time it took to get to the bulbs i got all of them at Radio Shack.
The soldering took all of 10 minutes

It took me five minutes to get the one feaking bulb out of the plastic body and ready for de-soldering. So, I called 928 Specialists. They are $2.25 ea. + shipping. PN 999 631 027 90. MDmetric has Flosser bulbs (449103) for $1.48 ea, but a $50 minimum. That explains the price from our 928 suppliers.

The bulb with holder sells here for $1.25.
Why take the bulb out of the holder?
Read the thread now I know why 8>)
Bulb only sells for $0.75

Steve,
If the bulb is for your GTS you need the bulb and holder and no soldering required.

Schocki,
Thank you for your brilliant how-to post. Worked like a charm.

Schocki 04-04-2011 03:35 PM

You're very welcome! Thanks for the feedback :)

It's on the left side, and runs up through the 2 rubber isolating donuts that sit in a U-shaped channel on the cluster and hold its left side.

Since this "fifth bolt" issue just came up again, I figured I'd update this thread with a photo that shows all five bolts (from my '90 S4):

Yeah, I thought there were 5. Even with all the bolts out, I never succeeded in getting the pod out with the steering wheel still in place.

Do you remember where you had difficulty? This really is an easy procedure, and once you've succeeded at it, it just gets faster and faster each time. One little tip (can't remember if it was mentioned), is that you'll need to move the steering wheel/pod all the way down when you're ready to remove the instrument cluster; otherwise, it'll be pinned between the pod cover and the windshield.

This procedure really does deserve the "Bill Ball stamp of approval". :)

In Bill's case he has to remove the trans to get the pod out.
Sorry, Bill could not resist.

Thanks for the great instructions. Did mine this afternoon and took about 20 minutes. Could not ask for better instructions.
