    Hi guys,
    I just got back my dash clock from the clock worker.He said he can not repair it without a new gear wheel that is heavily worn out.It is the white one on the picture. Does anyone know where to get a replacement kit or at least this gear wheel.The clock seems to be OK otherwise and it woud be a shame to substitute it by a modern quarz clock.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    In this case, it's better to find a working clock, quartz or not, and use this one as a parts unit. I have the clock in my spare cluster, but I do not know if it works, I need to test it.

    Many thanks for your help ! hope to get a working clock somehow. Anyway, the car is now getting new paint, that lasts a few weeks until I can work on the dash again.
