569 sl

Another problem with my 560 SL (87) (109,500 miles) Benz. The miles on both the trip and the total miles stopped working but the speedometer works fine. Before I start into this project has anyone know what I'm facing.

At that age, I would assume it's a plain old analog odometer. Chances are there's a broken or badly worn gear in the speedo head. Only way to track it down is to remove cluster and go looking. There are some aftermarket gears available; I did a fix many years ago on a Saturn with same issue.
