    I replaced my Moms during the Holiday break and took pictures to help others.

    No. This is for replacing the gear when the Odometer stops functioning. What you need is to replace the gearing (usually in the transmission housing) to correct your speedometer and odometer.

    you do not need to worry about the needle placement unless you physically pull the needles off their shafts. they reset themselves

    Good point, this is true.:nice: I was not sure if it was (so I took pictures), but after putting it all back together and reconnecting the battery, the needles did reset themselves to the correct position.

    Your all welcome. I saw a lot of post on this topic when I was getting ready to replace my Mom's, and I thought it would be great to show what was going on. As you know... A picture is worth 1,000 words, and I thought this would be able to help alot of people. :D

    I had to do this on my '95 Cobra. 'Twas a PITA working on such small parts.

    Jinx, you should link to this in the tech sticky in here. Nice job. :)

    Phenomenal write up! The pictures are great and can be used for anything gauge related. I wish this was here before I tore into mine!

    Nice Job!

    I don't see any harm in it, But if your like me and want everything working like it should... I can see a cluster repair in your future. :D

    I could not find this information when I did mine and decided to do a write-up myself. Not bad for my first one either :cool:

    I think the Mustang has created more technical writers than any other vehicle!
