Fix Stopped Odometer

Hi all,

My odometer in my VB is stopped. I havnt realy worried about it but now i'm going for rego in the coming weeks i need to get it sorted. Is there a way I can fix the odometer or do I have to just buy another speedo off someone?

If I do have to buy one, does anyone have one for sale in Sydney?

Cheers
James

Make sure the Cable has clicked into the back of the Speedometer fully.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

It hasn't worked since I bought the car even with original motor and box.
The cable is in properly though because the speedo is working.

Is there a way I can fix the odometer?

The easiest way is to replace the Odometer.

Otherwise the issue becomes fine-grained meaning dissemble the Speedometer which might ultimately prove unrewarding.

No worries, can I buy just an odometer or will I need to buy a whole speedometer?
Just replacing the Speedometer would probably be easier hey?

They are usually Integrated which makes them a challenge to repair.

its most likely stripped the spiral gear in the odmeter not worth repairing just source a odmeter from the wreckers or ebay

Pulling it apart and see how hard it is before I do it to my proper one.

Thanks for the help T

There should be a repairer who could fix it cheap. A instrumentation joint like AISAT can do it. They did my VS dash for $80. They had to resolder all the joints.

Cheaper because VS speedos are electric dingus.

AIRCO are VDO specialists: http://www.airco.com...
They are at Marrackville in Sydney.
A full reco on the speedo would be around $100.
You can post it to them if you cant get to Marrackville. Be sure to send it registered both ways. It would get there overnight.
