Link to the post with original problem. High idle after boosting

Let's get on with the Repair.

You will need TWO...that is 2...25v 10uf Capacitors. I used Two 50v 10uf Capacitors. You can use any voltage as long as it's above 25 Volts. The originals are 25V 10uf.
You will need a soldering iron-Cheap ones work
You might need Flux- I use Amtech 559 any flux will work and most Solder has a flux core.

If you do not have any of the above tools you can take your cluster to a TV/Electronics repair shop and they can replace the two capacitors for you for very little. It's best to bring just the Tachometer only.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


1st Step-Remove the TRIP reset pin. You really have to pull it hard. It might seem impossible to remove but it does remove!!!!!
Then push in tabs all round the instrument cluster. I started with the Clear plastic one first on the left of the picture, then I removed the black surround on the right.







2nd-You will need to remove all the screws that are highlighted in a red squares. Once removed the Tach can be removed. 3 screws in total.





3rd- You can lift the Tach out of the cluster once you removed all 5 screws. Should go from the pic below to the next pic.











4th step- Here is what your looking for underneath the Tach. There should be 2 blue Capacitors.
It's VERY VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU INSTALL THEM EXACTLY HOW YOU REMOVED THEM. One side is Positive and the other is Negative.






Here is the other one.









5th step= Desolder the old cap, here is the area you need to desolder.










Should look like this when removed






6th step-Solding in the new Capacitors! Note which way the leads are!

After video fixed
