Hi, my name is***** will cost about $350 to have the instrument cluster removed and have the gears in the cluster replaced for the odometer. If you can remove the cluster yourself you can probably get the cluster repaired for around $175. It's up to you as to whether it's worth it or not. If you need to track your mileage for maintenance intervals it would be important to have the odometer working.
