    hi all,i had to take clocks out of the dash and the speedometer arm fell off so i took the cluster apart and put it back on,when i drove it wasn't reading right and then stooped working can i replace just the motor that controls it or do i need to replace the whole unit.

    I reckon you've just pushed the motor of its cogs, take apart, look at rear motor & fit cogs back on if so, happens when you refit the needles.

    Its pushed back on, but when you push it can dislodge the rear motor cogs, so make sure cogs are all in place, refit housing & when putting needle back on make sure it doesn't dislodge whilst applying pressure.

    Personally I'd replace the clocks, much easier by the look of those components!
