my fuel gague is giving a false reading, and also, my odometer doest tick over, at all.

i was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to fix either of these two problems

any ideas would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

mohekn, XF's have got an analogue odometer (unless its the ghia coluster)

the odometer fault is a small plastic gear thats s**t itself in the odometer mechanisim, and it's just as easy to replace the cluster as to replace the gear

the fuel gauge fault will either be a f**k gauge or sender
