I've just listed 8 parts on eBay with many more to come (mainly next month). In this round there's an instrument cluster, Motronic ECU, idle air controller, door latch/lock actuators, power window actuator and a door stop. All parts in operational condition.

To see them as a list, follow the link below and click the "See other items" link on right side of the window.

I noted that the ad says the base instrument cluster is compatible with the Sport model. The Sport model has a different instrument cluster.

Whoops! Thanks for catching that. I based all the ads on the same boilerplate and forgot to change the applicable models.

Do you know if the ECU from the L/base compatible with the S?

Question, can one pop the cluster out from the front to get to the bulb?

Yes. The cluster is held in place by 2 (4?) screws hidden behind the lower panel (the one with the odo reset, dimmer switch, etc.) The lower panel needs to be *very gently* pried out to access the screws.

After the screws are removed, the whole cluster slides up and off of the dashboard.

Be extremely delicate with all of this...there are lots of easily-broken bits of 20+ year old plastic involved. This subject has been covered with greater detail in the 164 forum.

Just a reminder that these items close this evening. Many more to come in December.

The "S" has a completely different ECU from the L/base due to the high compression engine and different cams.

You need to remove the cluster and hood as a unit. Very simple. About a 5 minute job. Look in the shop manual and make sure you get the screws that go up from the bottom in addition to the ones that go in from the front. The plastic strip across sometimes gets a little tricky to pop out. Just keep working it. Note the "T" arms on the back of the hood. Don't reef on this thing hard to remove it. If it's hard to remove, you didn't get all the screws.
