    Hello all,

    I just purchased a new Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge-Style Tach Face (Yellow) to install in my instrument cluster from 'ferrari accessories dot com'

    Could anyone give me guidance as to how to remove the cluster to install this unit (the steering column seems to be in the way)...

    has anyone else ever purchased and installed this part?

    Happy to help ...... see this thread.....

    Also, check out the search function near the top right corner of your screen. You'd have a hard job doing anything on your car that hasn't already been done before and documented too!

    Good luck!

    You're very welcome. Be sure to thank the people on that thread for making it such an easy job for you to follow.

    Note post #4 above also, user seeking a web link to follow your recent purchase.

    Good luck with your install, it's an easy enough job to do (with all the help in that thread) just go carefully and delicately and all should be well.

    Thank you all!

    The unit I bought was from 'ferrari accessories dot com'
    (sorry, the forum won't let me post the actual link)

    It was expensive $500...but still cheaper than buying new OEM guages!

    Inside the dash left hand side, midway along the column assembly is a small square metallic bar a couple of inches running front-to-back direction with the car, with 2 x 8mm (from memory) bolts. This bar forms the stop for the steeering height adjuster. Undo the front bolt all the way and loosen the rear. DO NOT completely remove both as it's a awkward piece to reposition. The bar can then be dropped which allows the steering wheel to drop further down. The gauges then rotate out easily.

    About that bar. My steering column would not drop enough until I removed both bolts but was able to get it back on without much trouble. As I recall, I took the seat out to lay on my back to get under the dash. Used an inexpensive plain yellow face but added a metal Cavallino that is the same exact size and shape as the black one on the OEM tach. Used the same tutorial as noted above. To get the needle to align perfectly on the 0 when replacing it, reconnect the power plug before reinstalling the gauge panel and turn on the ignition to reset the spindle to 0. Then put the needle back on in the correct position.

    Thanks for all the details. I have to do this to get my cluster carbon dipped over the winter.

    Fwiw, my car came with a yellow tach on it.
    It could just be my tinge of colour blindness, but when lit at night, it looks more green than yellow to me. Looks good during the day though.

    If it's a ricambi/hill engineering yellow tach face, yes it is slightly more "green" when the backlight is on due to slightly different light filter colours. Mine is the same, but it doesn't worry me.

    Just did this to replace a stepper motor in one of my gauges. That bolt is super awkward, too long and too tight, but it's doable. When you go to put it back in, get a helper to align the wheel or else you will have to hold it up while trying to thread it.

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but has anyone found a source for the 360 gauge cluster stepper motors? My speedometer is stuck on 180 and won’t move anymore. Don’t ask how it got there!

    I ended up finding an incredible deal on a complete gauge cluster that I tore apart. I went back and forth with NMBTC, but they told me that the motors are proprietary. @eric355 may still have some left to sell or https://www.autotronics.co.uk/ sells them, they were pretty pricey though.
