I hope this helps someone, because when I was looking for the answer no one posted their fix!
I purchased a 1999 VW Jetta. Speedometer & Tachometer didn't work. Tach sat at zero. Speedo "bounced" on zero. Odometer, cruise control, and all other gauges worked fine.
I removed the instrument cluster. It's really simple, a couple of plastic covers, the light switch, and four screws. It was MUCH easier than removing the gauges from my F150!
I found DNA Speedometers by searching the internet. They're in Tamp, FL. I packaged the gauges and shipped it allong with a check for $129. Turn around time was GREAT! The received it, fixed it, shipped it back. That's it. I didn't have to call or send nasty emails. Nothing. They litterally turned it around in one day! Round trip took a whole week. That's UPS ground!
When it arrived I installed it and took it for a test drive. It worked like a champ. They even replaced the blown bulb in it. DNA Speedometers even garauntees their work for six months!
There are other places on the internet that repair speedos. I went with this one and had a GREAT experience.
Sorry, I didn't take any pictures. But it's pretty straight forward. I used the Haynes book to see how to remove the gauges.
