Has anyone worked on the printed circuit board attached to the temperature/fuel level gauges? Oil pressure light is inop and i have replaced frayed wiring going to fusebox. You can see where the copper wire inset on the fibre board panel has fried. The board looks like it is attached permanently with some type of rivet/stud. Has anyone successfully removed, repaired re-attached this board?IMG_1157.JPGIMG_1158.JPG

On my '72, instead of two "staked" studs, there were two metal pins with triangular self-locking washers.  I was able to pry the washers up, unscrew the two "nuts" and the whole thing came apart.  The blue lens for my hi-beam was translucent instead of clear. So, I took the whole thing apart to paint the inside chamber white to increase the light output.  


Good luck.

I checked my silver dollar cluster and it also uses the pins and triangular clips that Tsingtao described on his '72, so you should be able to remove the circuit board from the rest of the gauge assembly.  


With the board removed, I would think with some 18-22 gauge insulated wire and a little careful soldering, you could bridge the burned spot and get your oil pressure light functioning again.  Those circuit boards are pretty trouble free--yours is one of the few I've seen that had fried.  So, there should be plenty of used ones floating around for you to salvage.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
