Hello,

 

What year make and model vehicle is this?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
it is a 1996 ford ranger xlt 2.0

Thanks,

The problem is the gear that turns the odometer has stripped. this is common problem.

I have not replaced on a ranger but have done a couple on the mustangs. It can be replaced yourself if you have some patience and mechanical skills. there are a couple of youtube videos on the process.
