Instrument Cluster Exchange

Hi there, I have a A4 diesel 2.5tdi B6 cabriolet s-line Automatic with a battery drain that has been diagnosed as coming from the instrument cluster. After diagnoses and removing the cluster the drain stopped.

Question is this - can I use an instrument cluster from any A4 diesel or does it have to be the cabriolet? 

Also I have seen a cluster from the same model but with a different parts number, would using that cause any issues?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi try using a company called ECU Testing they specialise in fixing faults on dash pods and will test yours and tell you if its repairable, one of the guys on here was told his unit was beyond repair but they managed to recode a second hand donor unit he got from a breakers, I think it was a few hundred quid but the option was a new one from Audi which with the recoding was a few grand.

Thanks for your reply Steve, I was wondering if a replacement instrument cluster must be from the exact same model? 
obviously it will have to be from a diesel but must it be a cabriolet - automatic - s line?

Hi it won't matter which car you get it from as long as the part number is more or less the same, eBay is a good source, but the end result is the same it will need coding to the car as they are not plug in and play as the immobiliser is built in to the dash.

Thanks again, The instrument cluster would need to have the same dial values for example top speed and revs matching the orig’ but I am wondering if I can swap from other models for example the avante has a similar design, same values and similar parts number 8E 0920 as the original 8H 0920.

Hi as long as it looks identical to the original and all the plug parts are the same the letter in the part number is for the year produced, similar won't work it has to look the same but will still need coding to the body control.
