The odometer on my 1990 300E is stuck and not spinning. Neither is my trip odometer...

Anybody know what causes this and the solution to fix it?

thank you
I just got mine fixed today.
I removed the cluster and reinstall the drive wire several times with no effect untill I decided to look on the transmision side. I belive the wire was pulled from the transmition and even that it was looking OK I was able to force the wire guard back few mm in the place were it's crimped. That fixed it.

When I first got my 300ce the trip meter was stuck and clicking (odometer was OK) all I did was press the reset several times and it doesn't stick anymore.

Have you taken your cluster out and examined it? May just need some lube. (white lithium grease works for me)

Similar to this


it's wedged in there pretty well
but if you're careful, patient, and have a couple flat head screwdrivers
you can pry it out slowly.
Just be careful not to make indents on the outer console
when prying it out.
Use small pieces of cardboard against the screw driver's point of leverage.

Don't forget you have a speedo cable connected at the back
so if you don't have enough slack to reach behind there
you make have to remove the lower bolster

May want to do that first, since you can just reach behind the cluster and push it out

The very first step in cluster removal is to unclip the speedo cable from the plastic shield under the steering column.
If you don't do that you don't have enough slack in the spedo cable to pull the cluster out and unscrew the cable.

how did you remove the cluster?
Pretty much like this,
except you have to loosen the sleeve nut holding the speedo cable on
once you get it partially out
