    Default CX dash globe holder

    Greetings,

    Advertisement


    Does anyone have a spare globe holder - the larger ones that illuminate the speedo and tacho drums.

    Thanks,

    If you can't come up with the specific plug, try almost anything else of the same era. Many manufacturers used wedge bulbs for illumination, and although they may look different, the mounting tabs and contacts are often very similar if not the same. Take one of yours with you to compare. Volvo, Saab, Toyota and Jaguar to start with.

    A local mate seems to have come up with one.. If not, I'll get back to you!

    Thanks.

    PS: Hotrod - did all those other marques go down the same path as Citroen and use that soft plastic printed circuits for their dashes? Seemed like a great idea at the time… I suppose… but hell for tracing and fixing electrical faults.

    Thanks again.

    Yah, they're pretty universal. I think GM was the first in the mid '60's. By '80 most everyone (M-B is an exception) either had them, or was designing the instrument cluster of their next car around them. They're not so hard to trace, but they can be pretty fiddly to fix. Usually it's easier to simply go to your local U-Pull-It and find another one.

    Item handed over this morning! I acquired a box full of instrument clusters with the lovely red CX.

    Thanks Shane of course, but I could do it from the correct side of the Nullarbor, which can save quite a few days. I think the post comes by hitch-hiker sometimes.

    I wonder how many CXs are being used in Australia. It might be more than we think I sometimes ponder...
