    Just swapping my dash and didn’t take note of how these plugs were rotated (I.e. 180deg). They are in the right spots, I just want to make sure the sides of each plug are going into the correct sides of the gauge cluster. Does this orientation look correct?

    You can also double check anytime you do this if you look at the electrical Bussway on the back of the cluster and compare it to the male plugs. You will notice where pins are missing on the plugs there will be no bussways on the back of the cluster.

    Do these tabs let you clip them into the dash 180° off?
    I think I remember deciding thats how you know its right, but it has been months....

    If they are reversible, which I assume they are or you wouldn't be asking. This might help. Its not mine, I found it on here I think. long ago.

    Yes, that’s correct. However, I switched the wiring harness from one dash to another one. I popped off the yellow and greyish things on the back to get the plugs out, so there is a possibility I could have twisted one plug 180deg in that yellow/grey clip thing.

    Ahhh! I see! I haven't separated the plugs from the yellow and grey holders before.

    With a gauge wiring harness that shows wire colors and that diagram above you should be able to ensure they are correct before you put it back together. If you cant find the diagram I can try to dig one up

    Stuff is already in so I suppose if something doesn’t work, I know why. Not too hard to take apart and switch it around either.

    I would just be worried about crossing up that many circuits.

    Based on your pic, the center of the plugs aren't symmetric. There is a left and right. Check out the orientation of yours in the picture (blue arrows now).

    I am not saying its wrong, and I am not saying it will cause issues crossing that many circuits if it is wrong. But its an easy check and I can help walk you thru it if you want.

    edit: I admit - they may be randomly oriented from the factory when assembled...

    I checked my spare dash. if they aren't random, they look to be correct anyway.
