E1 BMW Drive gear instructions
It is very common for older BMW's (and even some Mercedes) for this gear to go bad. This leads odometers to stop counting miles; this is a small, but very annoying issue. If you do not need a full replacement gear set, this might just be your solution to having a working odometer again and for cheap! This is the same gear that some places sell for $30+ Easy installation! THIS WILL WORK FOR BOTH VDO AND MOTOMETER UNITS!
What cars will this work on?
