If nobody has the manual to clear the panel of instruments, maybe someone can say me how I must to do it... or indicate me a place where I can find it.
Thank you again.
Thanks bigtrs, but I don't want to "clean" the instrument panel, I wish to disassemble it to chrome the plastic spheres of the gauges. Sorry if I didn't explain it wellbigtsr said:I think you mean to "clean" the instrument panel,in that case you should just
use mild soap and water and very soft rag(microfiber) the plastic is usually prone to scratching be careful.

Please check your warranty book before you do this work. In the US, the *one* thing that truly voids the entire vehicle warranty is (and I am quoting directly from the book):panzita said:Oh my God. It's more work than I thought….
Thank you a lot for your aid. I don't know if I will be able to make this mod, perhaps that is not so easy… is practically necessary to disassemble all the interior.
If I find the necessary value, I'll do the work following your indications.
Thank you very much again and welcome.

I believe that he can do what he wants to in the dash, it wouldn't void the warranty as long as he isn't tampering with the odometer, just disconnecting it shouldn't reset it, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it have a ROM in it, I think ROM is the right way to say it.
That's only the case if you are unhooking it permanantly or for long periods of time, while still driving the vehicle. Unhooking the guage cluster to do a cosmetic mod and re-installing it, without putting any miles on the car, will NOT void the warranty as long as the odometer still works after the cluster is re-installed. They statement about unhooking the odometer, means unhooking it purposely in order to deceive people into thinking there are less miles on the vehicle than there really is. Not only will that void the warranty, but it is also a federal crime called odometer fruad.DodgeGirlKathy said:(oops, sorry on the country Panzita. I didn't double check first.)
Of course modding the dash is to anyone's discretion. That is not where my word of caution was directed. My points were--
(a) If what you do to the dash includes disconnecting the odometer (implied in step 9), well, that is the sole act that voids the warranty. Be aware of this consequence before you unplug that connection.
(b) If there are legal requirements for disconnecting the odometer, learn them and follow them, if keeping your warranty active is important to you.
