Also what problems your fuel gauge is giving you?

The make of the car is E30 320i 1989 model. I also found the copper screw at the back of the cluster removed. The screw right behind the fuel gauge.

My feul guage was also erratic. Turned out there was a nut missing behind the guage on the cluster. Replaced that and since then no issues at all. If you pull out the instrument cluster there should be a nut behind the temp and fuel guages which need to be snug. As I say mine was missing the nut behind the fuel and when I was on reserve tank the needle was dancing between empty and full. However the warning light did work fine
