    MKIV Speedo fault, please help!

    Ok, so I bought a Golf the other day. My first VW, and once I had a test drive I had to have it, but one problem. . . .The speedo doesn't work, so replaced the speed sensor coming off the gearbox, still not working, has anyone else had this fault? any known cure!

    did you replace the sensor and the long gear or just the sensor? If no gear, then you need to remove the loooong gear under the sensor and replace that. That is what normally goes bad.

    Things went to ****, was pulling onto a main road yesterday when the engine started shaking itself to bits. . . Main engine bearing gone apparently, so will put the speedo problem to the bottom of the list now. Have to source a seconhand engine, just got a quote for 400 euro. Bolocks
