This is a teardown of the "Nissan Leaf Instrument Cluster" from a ZE1. We also do a brief walk through of the Japanese to English conversion process. This Dash can also be converted to French, German, Spanish + many other languages. Plus we checkout what is inside the dash itself. #nissanleaf #electriccars #EV
Sorry, we have sitting on this video for 6 months. I made this video last year. And then a friend Ewan came over with his ZE1 Leaf "Aka" and said "Hey lets do a dash conversion". And I said "Hmmmmmm, OK". So we did the conversion (Ewan did most of the work, because I am lazy).
Anyway I released this teardown video from last year because it works !!!
Thanks again to Ewan for sacrificing "Aka" the 62 kWh Nissan leaf, to do a test dash conversion. Did first test conversion in lab last September, but just too lazy to try it on a EV until today.
We are not offering this as a service, but checkout below, for a company who can do the dash conversions…

⚠️ WARNING !!!!
This is a teardown Video. It is an educational video.
⚠️ DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME !!!!
I am doing this, as I am a qualified electronics technician of
30 years. And a very experienced micro-solderer.
You need specialised soldering and microscope equipment
to do this job properly, plus a spare dash or two
If you attempt this work and stuff it up, you will most
likely render your Nissan LEAF inoperable. EV4ME
accepts no responsibility for the damage you do !!!
