Hi Chaps,

Over the last month my speedo has been getting stuck at 20 MPH but after a few miles/minutes will go beyond that, has anyone experienced this before? Digital display and cruise appear fine and car drives normally. Don't really want to fleeced trying to get it fixed!

Thanks

The only way is to remove the cluster and see if there is something making it stick,,, not been up before this fault

I can certainly give that a go but my thoughts were something more electronic?

Well it is electronic,,but if the KMH is working OK then still in the head unit, try and see if the pointer is touching the face at the point where it stops

Ok thanks, I'll give this a go, is the removal fairly self explanatory or is there a guide/tutorial any where?

They cluster can be pushed out if you can get your hand to the rear to push it,, failing that it has to be pulled out with the special hooks
