Re: Info & Pics of the Japanese market 480s!

I don’t know how to post images, so I’ll post links instead 😂 https://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/voldog480/diary/200411270000/ Just keep clicking hyperlinks until you find more pics. There’s loads of images which highlight the features and specs you’ve already pointed out, but it’s great to see them out th...

Re: Gauge cluster

I would preferably like the Speedo AND info centre to be functional. If Speedo is still problematic then I’ll know at that point that there is something else affecting it. :)

Gauge cluster

Is anyone in the know how to fix my gauge cluster? Or would an auto electrician be sufficient? After attempting to fix my Speedo a while back, I discovered that the main circuit board would not separate from the backing due to the prongs for the info centre being soldered on at the top by a previous...

Rev hanging issue!

Hi guys and girls, I’m currently having probably the most horrendous driving experience I could imagine with my 480. As of right now I have; no speedometer, no info centre (no fuel gauge), no working horn, missing washer fluid nozzle, and many more issues. So I’ve decided to make this post in the fo...

Cup holder armrest

Very long shot here, I’m well aware by now of the small likelihood that this will amount to anything. But does anyone have/know anyone that has a cup holder armrest they’d be willing to part with? I’m paying good money and have been trying to track one of these down for a while. Many thanks in advan...

Re: Help/Advice needed!

At first the speedo seems to only want to drop when I’m accelerating more heavily than usual, but after a while just goes altogether! This all starts as soon as my engine has warmed up and as soon as the Rev hanging starts to occur. This is the only reason I believe they must be linked to each other...

Re: Help/Advice needed!

Hi! Thank you for the reply, I had a check of the throttle body and throttle cable today with a more experienced friend of mine and he said they both seem to be in working order. It seems it may not have had coolant in it for some time, and I’m worried that I may have damaged it more than I thought ...

Help/Advice needed!

Hi there, I’ve been having a problem with my car over the past couple of days. I’ve noticed some Rev hanging during gear changes. This comes a couple of days after putting fresh coolant in my car (it was empty), and now every time I change gear the revs are significantly slower to go down than prior...

Re: HELP!! My optimism is rapidly depleting!

Hi Adam, I have to say I was in exactly the same boat as you around this time 1 year ago. I even made a post similar to yours too! I bought my 1993 Limited Edition as my first car at 18 (I still may be the youngest 480 owner currently in the UK?????) and very quickly realised that it needed a LOT o...
