Specifically... Any leads on a business doing odometer corrections for R129?
My 2002....the instrument cluster gauges...been diagnosed by the dealership....need a cluster.
So, many available and I want the correct mileage inputted to the replacement cluster. Businesses I have contacted...can do for W140 and some SL's through 1998...
Well...hells bells...same cluster through 2002 and similar in W140 but anyway...
Any recommendations on a business I can contact? Already contacted 2 in the Denver area...can't do 2001or 2002 corrections.
Low miles on my 2002 and documents to verify so I want to continue with accurate documentation..

Odometer corrections can only be made using SDS on brand new digital clusters. Your dealer should be able to do this.
What about sourcing a good second hand cluster with similar odometer reading?

Looked at 27 clusters....all well over 100K miles.
SDS.. yes...but not going to pay dealership rate which is well over $500.00....R and R old cluster which takes all of 1 minute including disconnecting the harness and a few more minutes to reinstall and then SDS...
I've got 62K on my car...have not found any used. New clusters...zero miles...700 bucks!
