Hi guys,

I was hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction as to how to diagnose and fix this fault.

My Odometer and tripmeter have recently stopped working, however the speedo still works??!!??!!

Any suggestions on a fix????


Cheers,

its a little plastic gear inside the odometer that loses a couple of teeth..... there's a guy on EBAY that sells repair kits occasionally.....

an auto electrician should be able to help you out

if they wre a bit sticky then yeah that'd work - if they have ground down their teeth then it wouldn't ... i think some investigation is required - open up your cluster and have a look!
