The listing was a bit vague in terms of fitment, but considering their unobtainium-ness I thought for 10 quid it was worth a go.

Back when I had it I found what appeared to be the right one on Alibaba. Unfortunately the minimum order was 50.

I found the same and emailed asking for a sample to review quality ahead of a larger order.... no response :D

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

I'm going to whip it out (oo er) and have a look at it - see if I can make a universal one fit (few on ebay intended for kit cars, boats, etc)

My lancer lost its fuel gauge so I took it to bits and managed to resolder it and it now works fine.
I was gonna update my thread with pics but it's a modern so decided against it.
