My VDO speedometer stills works but the LCD odometer display has failed. For some time it flickered, lately not at all.
115,320 miles and done.

The old speedo is labelled 211-012-341. White pointer, blue line with odd numbers 5, 15, 25, etc.



I was not able to find an exact replacement. I found a very similar one, 211-012-341D. It has an orange pointer and even numbers 10, 20, 30, etc.



It does not match as well as I would like, but easy to replace. (+ and - power wires, one wire input from trans, 2 wires for backlights.) The unit will need to be calibrated for correct speed. This is easily done using the front button on the gauge.

Steve that looks like mine (maybe). I know I have orange also. Bobs has been replaced. Mine had been replaced I believe. I think Wally has original. We will have to go from memory on Bobs when at Milford as he had prior commitments.

After 13 years I finally noticed the orange. Speedo had been replaced, so never saw the original.

Did you consider getting a GPS speedometer??
I replaced my original with a GPS one
...no wiring hookups just a small receiver laying on the dash...

Actually, I did. (As you may recall, I replaced both speedo and tach on the 86 Regal with custom Speedhut gauges. The speedo was a GPS and they both work great.) Thumbs Up

The VDO guage was less expensive and can be changed out in about 10 minutes. I already have a GPS on the front window so I took the easy route.

Give these guys a try. If it can be repaired they can do it.

It’s an easy job to put your face and hands on a new unit. Just about any shop can do that.
