Gentlemen, the speedometer (and odometer) stopped working on my '86 300E today. I did a quick search on the topic but did not find the answer. I did check the cable by pulling the instumentpanel forward, diconnecting the cable and checking the bowden for movement while driving on the highway (very light traffic). I could feel the cable spinning so I am assuming that the speedometer is the culprit here. My question is can I repair it myself or is it definitely a pro job? I will take the instument panel apart tomorrow and would like to know if I should bother with it (any likelihood of succes?) at all or should I take it straight to the repair shop.
Thanks for your advice.
