hey all, I need to fix my odo because it has stopped. I would also like to fix the trip if I can. Could someone please give me instruction on how to replace the gear and the parts I need. Thanks so much. Im in a rush so excuse me if I made it sound demanding.  Smiley

I know that Ian sells the gear that you need to replace as for how there is a link in the tech section I believe.  The gear is cheap I think it's about $25 or so.

I did mine about a year ago and it was a very easy job just a little time consuming but not much.  I will say this while you are going in to replace the gear I would suggest for you to fix the cluster lights while you are in there.  That is why I changed out my speedometer gear.  My speedo was working but I figured that why I was in there I would change it out and I'm glad I did because as soon as I started messing with it the gear just disintegrated so it wasn't to long before it would have needed it anyway.

There are three plastic reflectors in your instrument cluster that are just old and the reflective paint is dull and cracking and your instrument lights are dim because of it.  A normal thing with the 944!  After I fixed them I replaced the light bulbs with blue LED bulbs and the instrument cluster at night looks amazing.  I also rebuild the clock and used a blue LED light in it.

They sell kits for the reflector rebuild but I didn't use one.  All I did was use a tape that air conditioning guys use in taping up duct work.  It's kind of like duct tape but it is metal (aluminum I believe).  I think that I wrote a little piece about this and posted it.  I will try to find it and send it to you.

@mueller944:  Ha!  food for thought.  I'm just joining this conversation but that's because my odo just stopped working at 111,700 miles.  Perfect timing for a winter project as we're due to get 8" of the stuff tomorrow.

However my suggestion is irrelevant to all of the post-85.5 cars, I PERMANENTLY fixed odometer on my early NA. As a bonus, I got the opportunity to easily adjust the speedo.

There is a topic in 944/1: https://www.944online.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1537904853
