Volkswagen New beetle gls: . I have a 2000gls Vw new beetle.

Customer Question

Hi. I have a 2000gls Vw new beetle. The instrument cluster is bad. I got a 99' cluster from salvage & tested good. Dealer here in Hawaii wants me to buy new $800 cluster plus $180+in labor. I'm not sure what my options are, but seems high price to change out cluster

That's about right for the cluster, but the labor is only an hour to do the job. That includes programming it to the car and keys to the vehicle. The issue you have is the 2000 cluster is for an immobilizer vehicle. Your cluster doesn't have a immobilizer in it and it won't program to the vehicle. It looks like they are charging you about an 1.5 hours to do the job
