Odometer and Trip not working! Please help!

Okay so I am a broke college student who has kiddos so you can see my dilemma with not being like a typical female who would just take my car to the mechanic. I think I can do this,myself but I just need a play by play of how to do it! I have replaced various parts on my car myself plenty of times before so I am not all like, "Eewy, I don't want to get dirty!" With that said, please...somebody help me! Thanks in advance!

You probably need the odometer gear drive and possibly the worm gear drive. Amazon has them for cheap, just ordered some myself. The toughest part for me was removing the headlight knob. A dental pic thats curved works good, its a clip that has to be gently pulled to release the knob. Other than that you just need two small torx screwdrivers.

well first, we need to know what year it mustang it is, and as i agree if its 94-early 98 then yes its a worm gear drive that sits right behind the odometer. remove the headlight knob and you will need to remove the cluster. remove the cluster housing or w/e it is called lol and u will need a t15 torx screwdriver for all the the screw. except when you actually get to the odometer then u will need a 5mm socket i think. if its digital all i can say is you will need a new cluster, or it could be a fuse. that would have to be determined by knowing what year it is first.

No problem some of us use a mobile app so sometimes on profile it wont say what year or so and other details. But you now have a basic idea what to do if anything you can always ask and people will help
