Fixed my 07 gauge cluster (water)
I had taken my ski's down to Sebastian Inlet, Fl and while riding I noticed that I had a lot of condensation in my cluster. I rode a little while longer and the cluster went out completely, The ski ran perfect, just no gauges. The water inside the gauge was about 4 to 5 table spoons full, a good amount. I got home after riding a couple more days and took the cluster off the ski. I drilled the clear part of the gauge right at the the side clip catches for the bezel (3/32" bit) on the face side of the catch so the bezel would still work. Drained the water by using my compressor (low pressure). It blew the water out the other hole I drilled and the vent hole in the back. (If I did it again only one hole would be drilled due to vent hole) I then put 4 or 5 table spoons of alcohol in the gauge swished it around and blew it out again. I put the gauge in a bag of rice in the direct sunlight for a day, took it out, filled the holes with clear silicon and plugged it in and it worked perfect. (for how long I don't know)
