This evening I have ordered from e bay a copy of my own speedo head for £19.00, mileage unknown and an eeprog programmer for £16.00.

I'll report back.
When you purchase an eeprom programmer, would it be an easy procedure to do to redo your mileage counter? Do you also need a Star diagnostic to do that or only the eeprom programmer would suffice?

Just the eeprom Jake.
Comes with a disc download.
U tube has good video to show how to do it.
I will be keeping my original intact just in case of slip ups.
Thanks to Deplore, at the start of this thread for the suggestion and I have searched for info on how to do it.

From the looks of the video, it seems you'll have to remove the eeprom from the cluster. I guess that is where I am scared to do as there might be a problem that may arise thereafter. I was hoping just to plug it to our 38 pin diagnostic plug if there is one. But please give us a feedback if you do it. Thanks

very true, how we all wish . .
Since you are removing the eeprom from your old cluster, will it not be better if you just replace the eeprom of the donor cluster?

Donor cluster is of unknown mileage Jake, that is the problem, or it would be plug and play.
However, if the donor shows more than 194k then happy days.

Doesn't matter, if donor cluster is the same as your current cluster, can just swap eeprom directly.

Deplore, when you say same donor cluster, I presume you meant same part number?
Assuming both clusters have the same part number, you can swap eeproms to get your old cluster's mileage to the donor cluster? Will that be an easy thing to do without possible damage to the donor cluster?

Same PCB. Same transistor, same mosfet, capacitor, MCU or what have you.

eeprom is a simple 8 legged chip. Use hot air to remove.

Look up youtube for guides.
