What vehicle do I get the RED Needles (pointer) from ?

I have been looking for a Posting but could not find one that indicated the vehicle I need.

I do know that the 03 Expedition has red needles but I didn’t get the Model and I do not know if they are OE on all models.

Thks

Check the Sport Trac's as well. My cluster came out of a (02? 03?) Sport Trac, and came with orange needles/ white guage faces.

Back in the day, folks scraped the color off of guage needles and painted them to any color they liked. May or may not be an option....

I have been looking at paint designed for the Gauge needles, they call it bright red but I do not know the end color.

Short money so I might give that a try too.

I have yet to come across a set of red needles from an Explorer or a Ranger. What people CAN do is take the factory needles, sand the whit off the bottom of the needle, and use stained glass paint on them as the gap between the needle and the gauge faces leaves plenty of room.

The Buffalo guys had a meet at a local yard. It was 25$ to get in and 1$ for ANY part. I snagged an Edge hood and I dunno how many white faced exploder clusters.

What does ' factory ' mean?
