Hi all! New to having an account here, but have been scouring this site for almost a year now after getting my 1994 Swift GA Hatch (I'm guessing that's the base model?)

Anyways, my question:
Would a cluster for 96-98 tracker/sidekick fit my swift of the same year? It's so hard to find a cluster with a tach for a swift and I don't like the look of an aftermarket tach on the side of my dash smh so someone HELP ASAP please!

the thing that is different with the tracker cluster is the idiot light legend overlay along the bottom of the instrument cluster. the gauges will work but some of the legend panels on the overlay are mis-ordered.

You could modify the wiring harness that goes to the cluster so that the idiot lights actually indicate the correct function.

the legend strip is just a thin plastic lens that covers the individual cells for the idiot lights. you just remove it from a swift cluster and move it to the tracker cluster. the only differences i know of between the 2 are the location of the redline markings on the tach and the legend strip markings along the bottom of the clusters.

I've got a 4 cyl tach cluster out of a 97 Metro that should work if you'd be interested.
