Re: need to replace the screen of the seedometer CL216
Well ,the best thing I would do is search out a salvage yard and see if they have the part in question .
Then the dash covering will have to be taken off the panel of glass/plastic should be resting right behind the dash console.

I believe these are plastic doors, so you can plastic weld a repair, or rough it up with sand paper and used fiberglass product such as "kitty hair" and glass mat, sand smoth and paint. Better still, there are tons of these in junkyards. Find one the right color and replace the door.
Those are usually sold as a one piece unit. I normally don't replace just the glass. Open the door panel up and you should see the wiring and 2 to 3 nuts holding the studs for that housing din place. remove those and remove the housing. As far as opening the housing I don't even think you can.
There's not usually a seal for these, the metal is commonly molded into the plastic sides of the radiator.. Remove the radiator tube and inspect the plastic around the fitting for cracks. If you find cracks in the plastic, then you know your answer. If it's leaking from around the radiator hose you could try replacing the clamp with a hose clamp that you can tighten with a screw driver.
My guess is the plastic is cracked there, and the radiator needs replaced, but you should inspect it first of course.
You need some bathtub silicone sealer and some black electrical tape and a couple of small wooden blocks. Carefully break out the cracked mirror. WEAR gloves and glasses when you do this and have a bucket to catch the falling glass. Make sure the mirror back is clean and put a bead of silicone around the back of the new mirror. Keep it about 1/4 inch from the edge and some dabs in the center portion. Place the mirror on the back and tape one edge down using a wooden block for a spacer. Then do the other side. Make the tape snug so it squashes the silicone and leave the mirror alone for 24 hours. After that take the tape and blocks off and you are good to go. Hope this helps.
The motor is atached to the lever by a small blue plastic piece. When this plastic gets old and cracks you will still hear the motor working but the glass will not pop. First undo the two screws on the handle in side. The plastic part of the handle will come off. to open you will have to pull the plastic back in the center (dont pull to hard it can break) and reach the mechanism with your hand. push the lever twords the passanger side of the car and the glass will pop open. after that take the plastic of the tail gate with the two screws on the side and pull it until the clips that hold it on let go. You will then be able to see the broken plastic piece. you can zip tie it together but its worth it to replace it.
There is a small plunger on the tailgate, see if that is still doing it's job to push the glass out abit. the other thing too is if the two pistons that hold the glass up is weak can do that and if the car has been out in the sun for a while, i find that the weather strip hold the glass down. Good luck and let me know how your did.
You need to put on a pair of gloves, and safety glasses. (Safety First !) Prise off the broken mirror from the plastic base that it is stuck too.
Give the plastic a clean with nail polish remover or similar.
Peel off the backing on new mirror glass, and carefully stick it on.
If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.
