Help with cluster swap

Hi guys,

I’ve got a cluster from an L251 Cuore VII from Germany. (Single plug, white)

I have an L251 Charade from Australia. (Green back, two harnesses)

I would like to know how I can make this work for my car.4DD6DEEC-1181-4DCB-8CE0-2670FD4B25CAB70ACD2C-9510-470F-8017-C6FAA615924E

easiest way would be get a plug with some wire for the single plug, find wiring diagrams to suit both dashes, write down a list of what wire does goes where and compare both, then join appropriate wire from single plug to your loom. i ended up doing 4 lists comparing just to make sure that i joined once.

I’m mostly worried about the speedo cable. I googled it and a converter is $300+

Maybe I can find a wiring harness from the original German L251, and wire from the ECU to the new cluster? Do you think that would work?

I may be able to help with a wiring diagram from the German model, and as with the Speedo converter, I think jaycar/tandy/dick Smith electronics might do a diy kit

And if your looking for a plug I’ve found to be useful, maybe they have an Australian or an international site

Thank you so much Mick! If you could track down the pin out I would be so grateful!

Maybe I can find an electronic speed sensor from the German Cuore VII and make my life easier haha
