    New Replacement Instruments

    This may sound like a really silly question... but if I replaced my standard black dials for a set of the white dials as in the SXI versions of the diesels of the Astra and Zafira... what happens to the mileage?

    Is the data actually stored in the instrument panel itself or elsewhere?



    Cheers.

    99% certain the mileage is stored in the clocks so you would see the mileage off the other clocks not yours, unless you got a qualified individual to legally set the mileage on your replacement clocks to match your current milage.

    I'm sure if you speak to your local Vauxhall garage they can plug it in to Tech 2 and change it over, Mat guest had this done when he put new dials in his

    yep as mike said Tech 2 will sort it, to be honest you are better of getting vauxhall to do the complete job. It may cost you a little bit of money but at least the car will be set up right and read the right millage. You dont want to do have the job and then vaux think you are cloking it so wont help you out.

    Vaux cant do this on second hand clocks though as they couldn't set mine - i was just left with the milage they rear end of story.

    So if they are new then wicked if not then just live with the wrong milage.

    Cheers guys.

    Yeah, it's a funny one this, I'm dropping the motor off at Vauxhall tomorrow any way so might have a word with the parts guy while I'm there and see what he says.
    I don't suppose new instrument panels are that cheap any way.... :-(
