Audi TT MK1 – Cluster replacement

Hey fellow folowers,

It’s winter time in Quebec and my TT will be stored for months. So I’m taking a few weeks to make tweaks and simple repairs in the heat of my garage.

Upgraded audio (double din radio) and cluster repair. I’ll post pics of where I am with this later in this post but I simply wish to let you know how to repair your instrument cluster.

Mine was faulty and replacing the complete instrument cluster ($2,200CAD) was not an option. Instead, I chose to simply replace the cluster for a cost of about $99.

Here’s what it looked like:


In order to get there and replace my radio for a double din, I took half of the dashboard out! But refer to this video to remove the instrument cluster only.

Once removed, you need to open the cluster and desolder it.



Make sure you order the right cluster! In the picture above, you see the original one (OEM p/n: D1560TOB) and notice how the soldering needs to be done of the left. The first cluster I ordered was the wrong one and was aligned in the center. See below.


If you wish to see how it’s done, have a look at these two videos:

Now I am doing this at the same time as adding a double din radio which is the topic of another post to come. Here’s where I am.

See you!

I started this blog just recently because I have so much fun modifying my MK1 TT... that I need to let the world know! And it's also a good reference when looking back at my mods. Ciao for now! Andre
