WARNING: I will not be held liable if anything occurs when attempting to change anything in the VCDS software. These instructions are created to the best of my knowledge and are as accurate as I can make them. Please be careful before you save your settings and always run Auto-Scan before any changes are attempted.
NOTE: This will not work for all clusters; newer model year cars will not guarantee this working as well as some members attempting this failed to get this working (even in MY2012 GTIs).

Load up VCDS, click on the Select button under Select Control Module

Click on the 17-Instruments button

Click on the Adaptation - 10 button

This window will pop up -expand the drop-down menu.

Click on the drop-down menu and select Staging

Select Active on the drop-down menu under New Value. Press Do It and the settings should save. Close the program, remove cable and remove key from the car. Get out of the car and lock. Unlock and get back into the car and start up the car to see if the staging works.

NOTE: When opening the Staging menu, if active is not shown in the Stored Value box, chances are this will not work with your cluster. If I remember correctly, it will say something like Channel: Not valid or Not Active or something along the lines.
