Years ago I remember an article in one of the VW rags about a place that took your old speedometer plus $125 and gave you a fully reworked and redone speedometer. I need one as well as a friend - we both have 1974 Super Beetles. Does anyone know where I can get them repaired? Thanks for the help!

Check out the tech section on the site. There is an excellent article on restoring your speedo. We have done 2 this year and they look great.

Hey thanks for the tip. I didn't realize there was a tech article on it. I read it and it seems quite involved but doable. Thanks!

Just pay attention to the location of the needle when you are dismantling it
'79 Super Beetle Convertible, Topline Sport+ springs and disc brake conversion. SS brake lines, KYB GR-2struts and Gas-a-just shocks

Plus the needles break very easily... too...
Pulling the speedometer apart isn't too difficult either, I have done a few...
Best of luck...
