I tried swapping clusters and the mileage shows up as "-----" if you hook up a different cluster, plug back in the old one and it shows up like normal. Also the bulbs I believe are flat LEDs on board rather than replaceable screw in and solder LED bulbs.I believe there is a post here on the forum of someone who took apart an early speedo cluster because they wanted the chrome trim that's part of the RS sport package.
I believe they were LED's. The mileage is stored in the Body Control Module, to my knowledge no one has tried a swap of an entire instrument cluster. Not sure if it has to be programmed or not. If the mileage isn't stored in it, could the entire instrument cluster just be a display?
Keep us posted if you attempt repair.
