I don't know for sure if it can be done Liz, you may have to drop the steering column to get up inside. Only major problem, if it can be done without dropping the dash, is all the ground terminals for the gages are attached to the speedo case. HTH.
Speedometer usually is W-1062. Number is located below MPH (bottom center) of speedometer. Not sure why I was thinking W-1097???Lindsay said:Make sure replacement speedometer has same W-XXXX (W-1097?) number on face so it registers correct speed. I found replacement dash light bulbs at local VW parts store (#11005 and #7512) or Opel GT Source has bulbs.
JB Weld works excellent for repairing and reinforcing those broken/cracked stud mounts. I question using sewing machine oil only because I think it might eventually break down the plastic (both petroleum based).BDD said:Having it still attached will break off the mounting studs and the speedo will have no attachment. I posted elswhere how to repair those. While it's out repair any broken ones and maybe put a small drop of sewing machine or 3 in one oil on the threaded studs to prevent corrosion before you close everything back up. Use the oil only after doing any gluing. Must be a superglue (cyanoacrylate) for plastics. The normal stuff won't work.
