If you're saying what I think you're saying....if you look at the picture I took you'll see that the glow plugs, seat belt, high beam, etc., are screened onto pieces of a plastic film that slide into a slot on the side of the cluster.

It's there on the cluster on the left, and stuck to the clear plastic cover (missing)for the right. They can be changed with a pair of tweezers, if they're not stuck in there. On my cluster, I think it had broken before and the PO tried to glue it together, and got glue on the plastic film.

There's even a center section that's glued on, must be for? Maybe gear indicators when shifting on the tree? If there ever was a column shift on a W123. I've wondered if I could put an outside temp indicator in there like the W124.

Is that what you wanted to know?
