E30 Odometer Gear Repair DIY How To

Having a working odometer is nice for checking your gas mileage and oil change intervals among other reasons.  Please look at all the images to determine if you’re comfortable with this procedure.  As long as you take your time and are gentle enough, you should have no problem!

The cluster shown is VDO though very similar to the Motometer as well.  We used new gears sold by Garagistic.

This tutorial starts with the cluster being taken out already.  Tutorials on removing the cluster will be added in the future.
