  • BMW

    BMW instrument problems:
    If a series 5 or 6 car experiences a loss of both speedometer and odometer at the same time, the likely cause is leaking batteries on the service interval board. The original board is likely still in the cluster. ProgRama in Boca Raton, FL (561-338-8843) carries replacements. Some BMW models we service are: BMW 2002, 530, 525, 633, 635, 318i, 315i, 325

  • Porsche

    Porsche instrument problems:
    We do a great job removing the bezel and reinstalling it after odometer and speedometer repairs. The pointer on the 928 and 944 is very delicate! Be very careful about packaging this unit. The safest way is to send the entire cluster. We can also give you alternative instructions to reduce shipping costs but these increase the risk of shipping damage. Some Porsche models we repair are: 356, 911, 912, 928, 930, 944, 993, 996

  • Saab

    Saab instrument problems:
    Saab 900 cars sometimes have wavy speedometers, plus the usual odometer failure. We do business with a number of Saab shops and used car dealers in the northeast. We also service Saab 99 and other vintage models. Some Saab models we service are: 900, 99

  • Volkswagen

    Volkswagen (VW) instrument problems:
    We do our part to keep the VW cars rolling down the road. Sometimes the speedometer squeaks due to a lack of lubrication and may eventually lock up, breaking the cable and causing undue wear on the speedometer shaft and housing. We do not repair VW clusters with digital odometers. Some models we repair are: Beetle, Bug, Karman Ghia, Cabriolet, Jetta, Fox, Vanagon, Thing

  • Volvo

    Volvo instrument problems:
    1986-1993 Volvo 240 odometer failures are common. The repair typically includes replacing one or more of the following: gear(s), odometer motor, or IC chip. 1993-1997 Volvo 850 odometers usually fail due to a bad gear. Most customers send us the entire cluster but you can save shipping by sending only the odometer unit. Some of the models we repair are: 140, 240DL, 240GL, 244, 245, 740, 760
    We no longer service 1991-92 Volvo 940/960 but can refer you to a shop that has experience repairing these units.
