Re: Anyone ever had to replace the instrument cluster need help

You've posted twice in 5 years, this being the second. The first was (here) for info about headlights and you never came back to say thanks or share what you did.

Granted, it took 2 months before someone responded, but they did...

What do you think will happen if/when others take the time and effort to help you this time? I'll let them choose for themselves.

If I asked a question and did not get a reply for two months there's a good chance I forgot I asked, or I forgot where I asked.

Well with that being said I wanted to say thank you for being a ######. Just incase 5 years from now someone brings this up and mentions I didn't say thank you.

Why so testy? You'll notice that I also said that you didn't share what you did to solve it. So, of what benefit was your first thread to you and/or anyone else?

My comment was meant to get you to think a little more about the folks who help you and giving back a little rather than just taking. In some circles it could be referred to as a "one and done". I'm not even a sports fan and I know what the talking heads say about those players.

If you'd like to continue using this site, the language you used and that I edited out cannot continue. I'm sure that doesn't scare you and is not meant to. It's simply the facts so that you're aware.

If I was wrong to publicly share my feelings, lemme know in a way that doesn't require editing. I'm not beyond apologizing when it's needed. At this point, I don't feel it's needed, but that could change with an adult conversation, if you're so inclined.

You make a very strong point. Thank you!
