I'll get the diagram i wrote it all up on and give you specifics. Not terribly difficult but not the easiest thing either. about a 3 on a 10 point scale.
oh right and trim one of the plugs so it will plug in correctly.
That diagram would be great.
I swapped a Forester STi cluster (same as the V7) into my '04 Forester XT yesterday and have the e-brake light always illuminated and the ABS light on all the time. I haven't tried the cruise control yet.
