Default How To: Roll back your odometer

This post is merely for education purposes and should not be followed under any circumstances. I take no responsibility for your actions.



Step 1: Remove gauge cluster (there is a DIY for this)

Step 2: Remove rear backing on the cluster. Should be approx 5 screws.

Step 3: Remove the needle on the speedo. Be careful not to break it. Using two spoons works well. Use a little leverage

Step 4:
Once you have removed the speedo from the cluster (3 screws holding it down) turn it over and look at the ODO dial. There should be 4 pins bent inwards from the factory holding the ODO in place.

Step 5: Carefully bend the pins back, careful not to break them

Step 6: Choose your new ODO number. Look over the car and pick a realistic number. If your car has 200k, and lots of dents/rust etc., rolling it back to 30k will be obvious that something had been tampered with.

Step 7: Now is the frustrating part. All of the little numbers have to be lined up perfectly. Make sure that the view from the front all the numbers line up. If you have a wonky number, someone looking at it will know it's been tampered with. This is very hard because all the numbers have very small notches in them. It takes a while, just be patient.

Step 8: Lay the dial back into the ODO and carefully bend the pins back to hold the ODO in. (while doing this make sure you don't make a number offset from the rest).

Step 9: Once the numbers are back in place, replace the speedo into the cluster and re-assemble. Be careful not to leave finger prints on the dial face... greasy/oily hands make marks easily.

Step 10: Re-assemble and revel in the fact that you just boosted your car's resale value ten fold.


Do this before you register your car or go for inspection. This will make the roll back invisible to ICBC or whatever your insurance/regi company is.

Yes... right. ^^ What he said.




P.S... I can't believe this lasted until now? Even though it is an actual step by step. And that is actually when I did it. Picked up a NISMO cluster and matched it to my original ODO.

on my skylines i can just roll it back by twisting the little speedo insertion point witha screw driver. no damage, and you dont have to fuck with anything.

YOUR ODOMETER ROLLS BACK IF YOU DRIVE IN REVERSE...MAKE THE CONNECTION.

I would never do this because if the new owner of your car finds out that the Odometer has been rolled back he can report you to the MTO and he gets his money back plus keeps the car... Then you get a nice charge for fraud.

Die. If you were to roll it back, use a drill with Robertson head
