your own risk!
Aim: To recalibrate Speedo Accuracy
Required: 1X Phillips Head Screwdriver, 1x Small Long nose pliers, 1x GPS unit
remove the rear demister and dash light dimmer. ( blue arrows ). and undo the screws the red arrows are pointing to in order to get the cluster cover off. you need to remove the top screw covers.
remove the cluster by undoing the 4 screws. ( red arrows ) and unplugging the two connectors at the back and the speedo cable.
undo the 4 screws that hold the speedo to the cluster. ( red arrows )
separate the cluster, start by removing carefully the black knob by pulling the end off, from the odometer reset. then undo the screws that the red arrows point to. Remove the two globes. ( yellow arrows ) press down on the cluster fascia tabs on the top and bottom. ( green arrows )
separate the fascia from the deck. carefully lift out the speedo assembly taking extra care not to touch the needle or the face. you donít want to bend the needle or leave finger prints on the display of the speedo.
With your small long nose pliers hold the shaft of your speedo, then gently move the needle up or down, depending on which way your speedo is out. UP if it was reading to slow and down if its reading to fast.
what I did was I put the speedo only in the car, connected it to the speedo cable, turned on the GPS and went for a drive, got a feel for how far out the speedo was. in this case it was slow by 6km/h. I drove the car to 60km/h according to the speedo and the GPS said 54kms. so I pulled over with the long nose pliers I held the speedo shaft, and moved the needle up 6kms, retest and repeated until I was happy with the result.
final this speedo does not have a pin to stop the needle at 0km/h so I had to adjust the needle rest position but using a phillips head screwdriver. because of me moving the needle while the shaft was locked, the rest position changes.
look inside the yellow circle and move the metal arm adjusting the 0 km/h needle position.
do this last after your final needle adjustment.
reassemble your cluster and refit it in revere from disassembly
I DO NOT take any responsibility in you misaligning your speedo and getting speeding fines or damaging your cluster or speedo assembly.
do this at your own risk !!!!!!!!!!!
