    Need part - 2k TA - gauge pod bezel + screen

    I have a 2000 Trans Am. I pulled out my gauge pod to adjust my white-face overlays and to clean the plastic lense covering the gauge cluster. Upon closer inspection, I have some spots that won't come out (don't know what it is, best guess is Armour All; I assumed it was condensation inside the gauge pod). Also noticed a lot of scratches from 7 years of windex and paper towels (note to self: use soft cloth on clear plastic from now on).

    When you pull out the gauge pod, the electronics half unsnaps from the clear lense and bezel assembly. I just want the clear lense/bezel part. The dealer tells me it's all one part and obviously I don't need the gauges which are expensive.

    Can anyone tell me a part number so I can go to GMPartsDirect.com, or know somewhere else I can find this? Thanks. I'd like to replace it. If I can't then I guess I'll try some plastic polish but I'd rather just get a new part.

    Followup:

    GMpartsdirect.com says it was part number 16230640 but is discontinued (explaining why the gauges and lense are one part now).

    But good news. I took the risk of applying a fine micropolish I bought for removing scratches from my iPod and I am amazed with how well it worked out (it could have either worked or ruined the lense). Not only did it remove the stains/splotches, it really took 90% of the harshness of the scratches out. It looks almost good as new.

    Followup:

    GMPartsDirect says the part number is 16230640 "instrument panel cluster lense" and it's discontinued (explaining why now it's one piece with the gauges themselves).

    Luckily, I have good news: I tried some micropolish that I had bough to remove scratches from my iPod, and figured it would either work or ruin the lense making me buy the whole thing new. It worked like a charm, took out the stains and reduced the scratches by 90%. It looks almost new now.

    Good find....that's the way they used to make them. Then you could put one on the Camaro & it looks sweet with the white face overlay.
