Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Ive been told the instrument cluster on my 2003 ford focus needs to be replaced at a cost of $680. Is this a fair price?Do I need to go to the dealer (this is the dealer's quote) or am I financing their holiday? I have to do something. The gauges work rarely so I don't know how much gas I have or how fast Im driving. My teenager will be driving soon and it must be fixed. Any suggestions??
I would strongly suggest that you hunt for a used cluster at a local auto parts yard. I know there are issues with keeping the odometer reading accurate, but that can be taken care off. If your speedometer and odometer are working correctly, that could be moved to the new cluster to preserve the acccuracy. I don't think a used cluster should be more than $150 or so, and having it replaced isn't that difficult.
If you are even remotely handy, it could be done with a little guidance. A one year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com for approx $20 will get you all of the how to knowledge you would need!
