[DML] Re: Backwards temp gauge

If anything you'd need to replace the gauge itself, not the whole 
cluster. I'm guessing you haven't installed pins to keep the temp 
gauge in the correct range? The needle for my temp gauge would always 
spin around after I shut off the car; getting stuck straight down. 
Every time I went for a drive I'd have to slam the cluster with my 
hand a few times and finally it would click to the correct temp. Take 
the gauge out, drill a small hole a little after the end and beginning 
of the temperature range, cut small pieces off of a paper clip and 
glue them in place. Make sure they are in a position that will stop 
the needle from traveling beyond, I almost drilled too far that the 
tip of the needle would just have missed and would have kept going. 
Even if this isn't the problem, I'd recommend doing this for all your 
gauges. I can show you a picture of what mine looks like with the pins 
installed if you want something as a reference, just ask me offline. --
