The gears were £15 on eBay
But they're out of stock
I've emailed them to see if they're going to get anymore

Fingers crossed :-)

Thanks for the tutorial, much appreciated.

What a nightmare task just for a blinking nylon cog.

As I understand it using the mechanical trip odometer is the root cause of the problem. I pressed it once, and having read up on 850 problems in general, I have never pressed it again. I am sure if I do that will be the end of it. Taking off the dashboard pad is such a job, I just use the electronic trip instead, and keep my fingers crossed that the full fat mechanical odometer keeps going. At 250,000 I imagine that it won't last much longer.

As a matter of interest, if I booked it in at SW how much would you charge for fixing it?
