    do you have access to vag com?

    maybe get somebody to scan for codes for you, should be able to get an idea of what is wrong.

    Gulp.... sounds expensive.

    Can you get someone to go in the car with you and monitor the vehicle speed via VAG-COM at least you will know is its the actual clocks or the speed sensor (which I belive is on the wheel on an 8L but I may be wrong).

    apparantly its a relativly common failure. mine also doesn't work, not only the speedometer and tachometer, but my fuel gauge and some other things also do not work.

    being in the us, it nearly impossible for me to find a replacement part, but i have found a local place that can repair it "supposedly".
