Odometer tooth gear broken.

From CEM to VEM, from LED to lightbulb and more. If you have an electrical problem, like a broken info-centre, search for answers in this category. This is also the place to be when you expect the problem to be of an electrical nature...

Odometer tooth gear broken.

Post by gsa60 » Mon Sep 12, 2016 2:25 pm

Hi guys,

Sorry if this is the wrong place (I know it's not an electrical issue but It seemed the best place)
My odometer is not working. The reason being that the toothed wheel that connects to the electric motor broke.
Right now I'm looking for a replacement.

Can anyone let me know if this one fits?

My problem is that the bottom wheel is broken so I do not know if it's a 16 tooth gear.
Also Is there any other place to look for these? 16€ seems way too much!

Usually only the little 20 tooth gear breaks.
What makes you think 16 euro for a specially reproduced part, unavailable at Volvo, is expensive?

3D printing is the only hope for 480 owners :lol:

As I tested the pre-series version I can say that it fits very good! :hopping:

'93 B20F (102.000 km) - Steel Grey Metallic (319)
'93 B18FT (190.000 km) - Black Metallic (305)
'92 B18FT (249.000 km) - Red (231)

'95 B20F (220.000 km) - Paris Blue Metallic (318) => RIP
