Speedometer Repair

Post by peregrine67 on Thu Jun 14, 2012 8:39 pm

I'm looking for a tutorial, a video, or just advice on how to rebuild a speedometer. My '67 speedometer is really noisy. New cable and I've oiled the cable too.

Try this, I used it for mine. The colored folder tabs work pretty good. I made up some leds for back lights. I replaced the plastic gear with a brass gear. I reset the odometer and greased everything http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=179776&start=10

Here's another good one. Probably very similar to the thread above, but this one is specific to the 67 and earlier speedometers

Thanks for the links. I think it turned out great. Reset the odometer, no squealing and the lights are all the right color now.

It looks great. It's not that hard to make it look nice. If you feel real adventurous led's really brighten the speedometer. Just search for how to wire a single led
