Odometer ist kaput

Hey all,
On an extensive drive last night I discovered the odometer has quit. I figure the car has gone into complete denial OR something has become loose or disconnected. Where should I check to correct this issue other than inside the dash. I REAAAAALY don't want to pull that apart. I'm not selling it any time soon so it's not a big issue.

Thanks for the input...

Well, Scott, you're still alive! The only way you can fix this is by pulling the cluster out, so just join the car in denial and enjoy!

Felicita e un bicchiere di vino con un panino.

Well it feels good to know I am not the only one out there whose odometer doesn't work, at least the speedo still works...for now.

The odometer, at least on old models (69's, maybe later) is a pressure fit on the roller mechanism. You can slide the odometer gear and scratch the roller and move gear back, this might pressure fit it for you. I take it your speedometer is functional.
