Problem with V6 Speedometer
The speedometer on my 1998 MY 156 V6 has started misbehaving. The needle swings all over the place even when the car is moving at a constant speed. Sometimes when the car is stationary (but idling), the speedometer needle shows the car to be travelling at speed (20 to 60 km-h).
The dealer in Dubai (there is only one) feels that the clock spring inside the speedo has failed and lost its damping effect. However, that still doesn't explain its behaviour when the car is completely stationary, with the engine on idle.
Any experience with, and solution for, this problem would be greatly appreciated before I fork out c. GBP 150 for a new speedo.
Thanks & regards,
