Different devices require different methods of removal. If you have rusty metal studs holding your device in, we recommend spraying with penetrating oil and letting it sit 24 hours before removal. Yamaha gauges have pull apart bullet connectors or plugs about 6” back from the Gauge, no cutting of harnesses needed.
For most devices, no. We are able to power the devices up on the bench without the harness. If your device isn’t listed, and you want to send it in for restoration, please provide bench testing instructions so that we can power the device up using a power supply. This helps us immensely!
We will either return it to you at no charge, or offer to buy it for parts.

Analog is a device with needle movements only. Digital devices have LCD display that ready data. The LCD is what can be restored or replaced, if possible.
Dark ‘Inky’ looking puddles on the edges of an LCD (usually towards the bottom) can indicate that your LCD is bad, or ‘Leaking’. Once the liquid crystal has leaked, the LCD is not able to be restored, and will need to be replaced if possible.
Here’s a few example pics of a ‘Bad’ or Leaky LCD in a Yamaha 6Y5 gauge. They need new LCD’s.
