(W113) 1963-1972 SL Odometer/Trip Repair


Common symptoms for this unit


The common issue with this unit is a failed odometer and tripmeter.  These units rarely suffer from other issues.  If you have a bouncing speedometer it is best to replace the cable.  The base repair of this unit will not remove the lens or front bezel, therefor will not clean the inside of the glass.  If you wish to have the glass cleaned on both sides please select level 2 during checkout.  (Please be aware, if the rubber back cover rubs off on your fingers, it will make the inner glass cloudy during shipping.  We are not responsible if you do not choose Level 2) We strongly recommend having the glass cleaned by selecting Level 2. If you are experiencing any other issues/symptoms with this part please call us before purchasing this repair.  770-831-8802


Our odometer gears are 100% made in the US and carry a lifetime part warranty through our friends at Odometer Gears.  Labor and parts are warranted for 5 years through Atlanta Speedometer.  If you have never attempted an antique speedometer repair, we do not recommend this unit being your first.  Once the original parts are gone, they are gone!



Note: If gauge has been damaged by previous repair attempt

cost may increase by as much as 320%.  Original parts are not

available and must be custom made.  Custom hair springs can

take up to 6 hrs to custom make and calibrate properly.

Rebuild Levels:

(Level 1) = Odometer and trip repair only

(Level 2) = Level 1 + Bezel Removal and Glass Cleaning (We also apply inner conformal coating to prevent buildup during return shipping and future use.)

(Level 3)- Level 2 + Re-chroming of  Bezel (Chroming is send out once we have removed bezel, turn around is 6-14 weeks.) We know its a long time, but it's the quality of the chrome we trust.  Through experience we have learned that thin parts like these bezels require particular care to be done correctly.  The people we count on can give us the best results for this process, but they take time to ensure proper quality.
