I was wondering if anyone has installed gauge faces in their elantra. If anyone has already, is it a pretty easy install, or do you have to take apart most of the dash?

No one makes em for my 97 GL model. cuz I have Fuel and Temp on the left side and Speedo on the right. I heard it was easy, Just take out your interment cluster, Remove the corrisponding screws holding it together, eventually you'll get to your faces, take the old ones off, and slip the new ones on.

I bought my face gauges from sharkracing.com for my 2000 elantra gls.

its pretty much straight forward. You will need to take out the box that holds the gauges, and then take that apart. All I can say is, JUST be careful with the needles and putting them back on.

Take a picture of where the needles set before you take them off.


The end result: they came out looking good, just cost me a ticket (sigh).

yes, definately remember or take a picture where your needles are last set to when the car has been off for a while.. iu ****ed up and didnt do that when i put mine in... so when i started my car it said i was idleing at 4000 RPM's and had no gas in it... lol... i had to take the whole damn thing apart and re do the needles... pain in the ass... RPM's are off by 100 or so but.. whatever.. it's not that hard.. took prolly like... an hour at the most... if i didn't mess up <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Hey, it's a good idea to keep the plastic cover off for a week or two to make sure the needles are where they are supposed to be. I made this mistake, and my gas needle was off <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

But, yeah, it's pretty simple stuff for the Elantra.

Oh, also, be sure to disconnect your neg battery terminal to cut power to your dash, or else, when you disconnect those wires, you could end up causing the CEL to get stuck on... that's a costly mistake (monitary value that is) because you usually have to pay your dealership to reset it...

Good luck with your gauges! Let us know how it goes!
