... so I take this to mean that the speedo is working well?  If so you may
have a different problem than most ... there are well known issues (and
fixes) for the speedo on the 200.  I think I heard that the techniques were
documented on Scott Mockry's site:


you may want to poke around there for info.  If you want to take it
somewhere I have had good luck with Palo Alto Speedometer down in the south
bay ... but they are *expensive* ... you might well consider purchasing a
complete instrument cluster from a recycler ... if it truly is just the odo
which has flaked out it may well be a mechanical issue that you can fix
yourself (BTDT several times on older cars with mechanical speedo/odos).
