plinker17722 I was lucky my small gear wheel had moved along the shaft and was no longer making contact with the main gear .I just roughed up the shaft with diamond file then put a spot of super glue on the shaft --not to much or it can get on the gears then its a stip out job.Then fitted the small gear back in place .Take care when you have the main numbers drun out --put tape ovrer the numbers to hold them in place if they do move you speedo wont work or dot the number down on paper if they do move you can line them up again after.Did my speedo trip three years back and still going well .Google search on this will come up with lots of information.

Here is the link for pulling the cluster if you need to.

1994 E420 ijiwaru: I imagine that your 200d is the same as my my 1994 E420, which has a white or yellow nylon gear in the speedometer housing that controls the odometer, yours is probably missing a tooth or two. You must use a special tool to pull the gauge cluster (this tool can be made from coat hanger by putting a small hook on the end of each of two pieces - approx. 10" - 12" in length - that have been bent into a "L" shape). Replacement is easy enough for a DYI project. You can order a replacement gear from this company:

Also, pushing it is not as important as how you let it snap back into place. Try pushing it in and while it is pushed in, slide your finger to the side to release the button. This will let it snap back as quickly as it can.

Make sure you do not push the reset button while the car is in motion, only while stationary.

tuttebenne Start here. The trip odometer usually does not break. The majority of the time its something simple.

Odometer/Trip meter not working

The odometer and trip meter of my 200d stops working once in a while, specially if the car has been left out in the sun for an hour or so. The speedometer works fine though. After the car, or the interior has cooled down, or after parking in a covered area for quite a while, the odometer and trip meter start working fine again. What could be done to fix this? Thanks!
