Thanks for the help. A couple of questions. Where do I find "Maintenance Procedures/Airbag System Disarming" ? The owner's manual?
How do I get to the back of the Speedo? Under dash or behind cover in trunk? If trunk, how do I move the cover?
You say the mileage is set in the computer, so if I plug in the new speedo it will adjust mileage on odometer? (From what it shows now to actual for my car)
