Are you wondering how you fix an odometer that doesn’t spin? We offer a mechanical odometer repair service to restore these older odometer assemblies for you
What would cause an odometer to stop working? The answer is time. As cars and components age they survive thousands of cycles on and off, hot and cold, and older mechanical odometers have small plastic gears that spin endlessly. These gears usually made in the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s were made with old technology and plastics. These plastics were not designed to stand up to 20, 30 years or more of constant use. The results is failed or cracked gears and an odometer that will no longer track your mileage.
Can you wind back a mechanical odometer? Sure, but not legally. We are able to adjust many mechanical odometers if you replace a cluster. Sometimes manufacturers implemented anti-tamper devices or brackets that make it nearly impossible to roll them back without damaging everything. Typically we prefer to repair your original assembly and get your odometer counting again.
