Default Odometer Repair

If the speedometer is working but the odometer is not, a simple replacement of a small plastic gear may do the trick. It's available at carradio.com for $28. First step is to remove the panel surrounding the gauge cluster. There are 5 screws across the top and 1 above the radio. The bottom is attached with metal clips, pull gently and evenly, this is the hardest part of the repair. Unplug the Display Center.

With the panel out of the way disconnect the gear indicator by pulling the metal tab from the slot.(it's at the tip of the pen)

After removing the phillips screws around the cluster the arm on the right must be unhooked from the temperature controls. Slightly pull the clusters left side out to allow the arm to go toward the engine. Unplug the wires.

Remove the 8 screws around the cluster, T-20 Torx tip.

Next remove the 3 screws on the speedometer, T-20 Torx tip. Gently pull the speedometer applying more pressure to the left side.(it has a 3 prong plug behind it on the left.)

Now remove the 4 small screws that hold the number dial to the speedometer head. Do not remove the needle or trip reset.

Flip the unit over and remove the 4 screws attaching the clear plastic cover.

Remove the 2 screws fastening the motor.(1 is still in place in this photo)

Flip open the panel and remove the motor. The broken gear is off-set between the motor and the white disk in this photo.

After removing the broken gear make sure all debris is removed as well.

Replace broken gear with the new one, reverse the disassembly order. Make sure all fingerprints are removed from the speedometer dial (the black paint is easily smudged) and clear cover. This project took less than an hour.
