I was phoning the dealership to pickup that gear that you suggested for my odometer that was itermittantly working at times (stopped now) and the same for the tripometre. They said they don't know about that and the only thing they list is the speedo head which is $500. If you know the part number that will help me greatly. Also, what part wears out on the rear hatch closing locks. It looks to me like the rings that squeeze the pins on the hatch, but are there more pieces that wear? They faxed me a blowup diagram and there alot of parts and I want to make sure I get the most neccessary ones. I also have loose steering and after an allignment the place said it was my balljoints put you have to get the whole arm and it's like $1,200. Could it be the (pray it is) cheaper tie rods? I'm guessing it will probably have to be put up on the hoist. I can feel somethign loose when I had it up on the hoist, but I'm not to sure what to look for and what is within specs. On the steering wheel you notice it is loose, you can turn the steering wheel about 1.5 cm (O.D. movement) before something happens, which is quite alot. Car still handles alright, but this was how it was when I bought it.
