  1. Thanks guys. I went with a seller from ebay. I'll let you know what I think about the products.

  3. I have a 1998 V6 Mustang and my odometer went out. The repair shop said I would need a whole new instrument cluster (about $700 after labor) and I declined. So first off, thank you for posting this! I ordered the gears and hopefully this solves the problem.

    I did have a question about something the mechanic told me. They said if you remove the instrument cluster, Ford has an anti-fraud fail safe to prevent odometer tampering and that if you remove the cluster, you must have your car towed to a Ford dealer who can "flash" in the correct mileage from your engine's computer to the odometer.

    Two questions:

    1. Will replacing these odometer gears cause the car to not start?
    2. Is he correct that a Ford dealer can "flash" in the correct mileage? I would like it to read properly once this repair is made anyway.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer this!
  4. 1.) No
    2.) "Flashing" refers to the digital clusters not these mechanical clusters.

    Enjoy, and let us know how it goes.
