    I can tear those tags off legally?

      great write up. i currently have 3 mileage numbers to track (the odo, the actual chassis mileage, and the motor mileage) and this will make my life easier by knocking it down to two.

            Back to the top - any update on VDO odometers? I just had mine apart for a gear replacement (brought to you by garagistic) and wish I had seen this thread earlier. Is the VDO procedure much different?

              VDO is much easier. I will put up a step by step tomorrow evening.

                      that's a lot of work to just change the mileage. you don't really need to remove the face for vdo or moto.

                        damn...

                        i think i lost the tiny bearing from the motor,

                        i have a vdo and replaced the gears in it and it hasnt been working and should be, and i remember taking that motor out and not seeing a bearing, shit...

                        i need a new one...

                        only realised this is why my new gears are not working after reading this thread

                          This is a great write up matt, thank you,
                          I was wondering if you knew where to order the plastic gears for the odo on the other side of the motor. I have 2 large gears that the teeth started to tear off, and the same for the very small black one.
                          Thanks
                          I love that people ask stupid questions so I dont have.

                            I replaced the VDO odo gears in 2 cars recently. On the 318i it had been broken for ages and as much as I wanted to bring the readings current, I did not want to risk taking it apart. On the 325 I was following the recommendation from odometergears.com by blowing out all the bits of debris with an air compressor. Turns out there is a paddlewheel (I cant recall which end of the gear shaft it was on) that when you hit it with air, it will wind the odometer back or forwards. This speedo hadnt been broken for long so I didnt change the readout, but I would guess that I could have wound it back to zero from 200k in 15 minutes with NO disassembly.

                            As for Federal Odometer Statements, cars over 10 years old check the "exempt" box. Case closed :-)

                              if any of you are too afraid of doing this, i have a couple dozen speedos leftover and can set em up and ship em out with new odogears.com gears for less than the cost of the gears themselves.
