i just cracked my digital odometer in my el xr6 today and the odometer is all over the place and my speedo is out of whack big time like 30km's over.im just wondering if any one knows if you could just swap the little screen inside the odometer like you can change on the digital clock and what i can do to fix my speedo?

the odo lcd screen is like the clock lcd. you need to pull the dash instruments apart to get to it
have a read through here-
documents.php?d=25

with the speedo, have you changed anything recently
might be dirty connection on the transducer/speedo sender plug in the transmission.
or a leaking transducer
easy enough to remove, 1x8mm bolt.
could also be the driven gear on the end of the transducer/sender unit has worn out
