Re: Dead Tach - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
It is not difficult to replace each gauge section (tach/speedo/combo). It's eight screws on the back, lift out the section, replace. There are some gotchas - replacing the entire section is quite easy, but then you're limited to a narrow year range - Saab moved the warning lights around a few times. Replacing just the gauge is not much more difficult, but requires removing and replacing the plastic circuit board which introduces the potential for damage.
I think you're moving too quickly here - you need to find the problem, first. Check the plug on the back of the cluster, check the circuit board, check the tach. Although not impossible, it's unusual for the tach to fail. I wouldn't just assume the gauge itself is the problem.
