    I have an 03 burb. Will the cluster from a 2001 1500 directly swap? My 03 has a bad speedo. Happen to have an extra cluster from an 01.

    Thanks,

    No a Dash Cluster from a 2001 will not work in your 2003 Suburban......You would need a Dash Cluster from a 2003-2007 model Truck or SUV.

    I think the clusters changed. If they look the same they should work, but I'm not 100% sure.

    They look similar, but they wont work. You need a 03-07 cluster.

    The 1999 to 2002 Dash Cluster's are Different from the 2003 to 2007......

    The Difference is that the Message Center on the 99"-02" is located at the top left of the Dash Cluster....

    On the 03'-07' the Message center was moved to the bottom and center of the Dash Cluster.

    There is a Special Coverage Adjustment.....for the Dash Cluster's on the 2003' to 2005' Trucks & Suv's that have Gauges the Stick,Flutter and become inoperative.....The Coverage is for 7 years or 70,000 miles......in which G.M. will replace the dash cluster's at no charge....

    Below is a Link that goes into Detail re-guarding this issue,

    Is there a write up on here that explains how to go about replacing the cluster and what is involved?

    Put gear a way down to 3rd lower steering wheel remove trim by gently pulling from corner(GENTLY) SHOULD BE A BOLT ON MIDDLE TOP AND 1 ON EACH LOWER SIDE PULL IT UNPLUG IN MIDDLE THAT'S IT,i was told speedometer need to be calibrated by vin# and all kind of stuff don't know for sure found instruction on styllin concept looking for new gauges face or somewhere like that looked pretty easy...............
