    Default Gauge cluster capacitors

    I need to replace the capacitors in my 95' 525i. According to BMWe34.net, there are two types of clusters. However, it did not list the types of capacitors needed for the 92' and after clusters. Anyone know which ones I need?

    Hate to break it to you, but I think you'll have to find out when you open it. Not ideal, but not much of any other way about it.

    That's how I had to do it. There are a lot of those in there, and as for me, I wound up replacing just one that had leaked pretty bad. Otherwise it's working just fine, and not perfect.

    I don't think there are plans of the circuit board going around.

    I could be wrong of course.

    as long as they fir it does not matter so much

    I have replaced them ALL with 35 Volt ones.
    You just have to pay attention to the diameter, otherwise they do not fit, max. thickness/diameter of 10 mm is possible and NOT higher than 16 mm.

    The distance between the "feet/legs" of the capacitor should be 5 mm.

    So the dimensions are the most important, the rest does not matter much.

    I got a 92/7 build date, and the one I had to replace was a 1000F 12V. The list is for 1988 7 series. My cluster has a blue back.
