Disassemble daily trip odometer tip
#1
I have received my odometer back from repair and like to install a new bezel lens. Following one of the threads I‘ll like to drill a whole and glue the back of the tip on the new lens!
WHO can help me „how to disassemble the reset tip“ from the old lens?

Whenever you need to work on a part of your car, and have questions, it's likely been covered in other posts or tutorials. All you have to do is search the forum (under More, upper right of this page).

The trip reset is molded into the lens and not removable as a separate assembly.

I believe the thread you were looking for is here: https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-inst...light=lens

But he reused his tachometer lens and spliced it to a new fuel gauge section.

For clarification.... I reused my original Speedo/Odometer lens and spliced it onto a new standard Fuel and Tachometer lens portion. The lens is facing down down in the picture. I was a bit apprehensive about cutting the new lens and my old lens apart, but the end result was t worked great. The splice was completely hidden behind the bezel over the gauges.
