    failure of the odomoter is common, an instrument repairer would know the cure, also ask a holden dealer

    yah i know you can buy the cogs for like $11, but the idea of glue wouldnt it just stick together and jam

    Yeah I thought glue would have jammed it. Maybe a new cog if you want to fiddle with something so small.

    It'd be easier to either get a new piece from the wreckers, or get it repaired properly I'd say.

    Theres a guy here that does VDO repairs, he will take your dash, fix your bulbs, everything for about 70 dollars I think. Depending on whats wrong with it of course.
