W108 250S Odometer spinning freely

New owner and I am sure this has been a discussion already but I cant find it. I have a 1970 280S with the odometer spinning freely and the only digit spinning occasionally is the left most (XX,XXX) digit. Speedo works fine. How do I remove to view possible issue and pointers on how to fix. Thanks

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
