Question about 1996 Volvo 850
My son just bought a 1996 Volvo 850, 168.000 klms. The previous owner said that awhile back the speedometer stopped working and then again would start. We have not seen it start again yet. I have been researching the internet and have found that a small drive gear in cluster panel maybe cracked.
Do you think that he should try this. I have found (40 step by step)instructions with picture's.
Thank You, mark
As long as you have the instructions to replace the speeometer drive gear go ahead, and do it.
One BIG question I have for you....how do you know that the mileage is not way over what you've been told?...
small tip for the future.......if you ever look at another car for anybody, and the speedometer doesn't work...pass up the car..there is always another one down the road waiting for you.
Hopefully this will help you, and thanks for letting us at FixYa.com help out...happy New Year
