I do not think it was a mistake because the indicator is working well, but reversed, if the fuel sender out and move it up and down, move the pointer. And in the instrument cluster, a single wire coming from the sender, because the other one is ground. Thanks for the reply

Hi!
Im new to this forums, but i have a quick question!
I have a -97 A4, with cluster number 1, but without the LCD and with 4 gauges...
Is it possible to swap it for a -98 cluster with 6 gauges and LCD?
