polo 6r dust behind dash

Post by plumpton » Fri Mar 03, 2017 7:33 pm

Hi all

Got a 2014 Polo 6r and I can see that there is some dust behind the clear lens between the speedometer and rev counter.

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to get this out?

CNK, the dash pod on the right hand side looks like 6C, if it is, how easy is it to remove the part that is the silver rings, while the dash pod is still fitted to the car?

The reason that I am asking is, during cold weather, these silver rings seem to be touching and moving against the padded dash surround - and it makes a very annoying creaking noise, if I can just remove these rings as an assembly, I might apply a small amount of silicon grease to stop that happening, or apply polish to the padded dash surround.

I've noticed that the plastic clear cover, at least on the 6C is very soft and does mark very easily, I noticed a mark on the dash of my wife's car when it was just delivered, so I warned her not to try to remove that mark as it would only look worse.

I'd like to know how to remove the clear cover so that I can clear the dust away from behind it.

Hey! Yes, instrument cluster on the right hand side is from 6C:

First you have to unscrew and remove instrument cluster:

Then just remove the plastic covers eg. using a flat screwdriver:

Take off carefully so as not to break the hooks/brackets (?).
I would recommend using a hair dryer to warm the brackets :wink:


IMO In 6C is easiest because glass is not glued to dash panel.

Thanks fella. Thats my Friday evening sorted. Doesn't look like it'll take long to pop it out and remove the dust.

cnk,

are the 6R and 6C instrument cluster of same dimensions?
is it possible to put 6R cluster inside 6C cluster case? ie to get elevated and chrome rounds around speedometer and rpm gauge.
i know 6C has 18 pin and 6R has 32 pin. so only disassemble and change case.
