The image and link to identifying. Once you've fixed it, a good way to avoid it failing again is to only reset the tripmeter when stationary, someone found resetting it while moving was a primary cause of breaking the gear wheels inside.

So true Dave, never reset a VDO whilst on the move and the drive cog gets brittle.

The VDO final drives are purely mechanical based on decades of VDO's antiquity which were totally unfit even in their day!

A useful guide, in my view, to fixing VDO's can be found on Dave Barton's website at: https://www.240turbo.com/740-odometer-repair.html ,although it could be improved!
