Changing a Punto's Spedo Dash

Recently purchased a 2000 (X) 3d 1.2 Punto for a first car
For it age its in very good nick only a few little stone chips on bonet - but hey its 7 1/2 years old

Anyway
Im Not one to mod a car (Rc maybe not a 1:1 car :lol, but i have to admit - tbh i dont like my Speedo Dash that much........

How much would it cost to say have a Fiat Punto (mk2) changed from the
Version where you just have a Speed and Fuel Gauge

To The Version With A rev Counter and Temperature gauage as well Would of posted images but since im under 5 posts i cant :lol:

(see about uploading into gallery :lol

Mine is just a Standard 1.2 3d Punto
Its Not a sporting or anything

More of a questions does anybody know if there is all the connections behind it for it?

The reason why i didnt get a sporting as insurance was one of the things that had to be good for me to buy it, been a young male sucks :lol:

Re: Changing a Punto's Spedo Dash

all mk2 speedo's will fit all mk2's
just make sure the new one has lower mileage than yours then get it aligned at fiat dealer about 60

The One on the Left is the one i sort of fell in love with

I dont know what it is about Rev-counters but i just like them

Would My Local Fiat Dealer (up the road from me) be able to the whole change over and alignment?
I am aware tho that they WILL charge me a Bucket load....

Re: Changing a Punto's Spedo Dash

yep but they probably charge you 100 just for fitting and alignment
its easy to fit yourself, just four allen bolts in the surround 2 top, 2 bottom
, 3 bolts holding the unit in and a single conection on the back, it should take 10min max

So its that easy?

I think it'd be a nice little project for me
And then just gotta nip upto the fiat to get them to align it all

Need to find 1
need to Ask fiat a few questions :lol:
And when funds apply doing it

Re: Changing a Punto's Spedo Dash

BINGO

Now to perswade parents (A)

And it should be a simple case of a drop old one out - and connect new one and in it goes?

Also will the millage be the same? or will that have to be reset?

As already said in this thread you will need to buy one with lower mileage than yours and get it "proxy aligned" at your local Fiat dealer which corrects the mileage and stops the display from flashing. You need to get one with lower mileage though, Fiat can only put the mileage forward, they can't put it backwards.

Ah i thought alignment was only the dials :lol:
Why did i think about that? :lol:

But yeah getting a clock with just under 70k aint bad

If it was like 10miles over that aint that bad really, but yes i'll look at getting it looked up
