Odometer issues 850

One of the things I've had an issue with my car is the odometer. It doesn't work. I figured out my mileage (it's less than I feared).

However after buying the new gear for it, it seems to still not want to work. Does anyone have any ideas what might be the issue? I'm taking the dash off tomorrow to check. Maybe the thing that spins is bad?

Did you find a broken tooth on the old gear? That minuscule piece of plastic must be removed or it can get stuck somewhere and clog the works. I have never heard of the electric motor going bad.

How did you get the correct mileage? Did you spin the odo up to the actual miles? I used a drill, a pencil wrapped in 1/4 inch thick masking tape to spin the odo about 30K miles - took a long time.

Keeping it running is better than buying new

I never did find the tooth from the gear, I am going to look tomorrow when I take apart the dash again.

As for how I found the information out, I bought a veekpeak (or whatever?) OBDii reader, and a volvo app I saw Robert DIY talk about. I trust that it's works since there was a few people confirming it works for them too.

I haven't corrected the mileage yet (I'm going to re-check it before I do anything tomorrow). I set up a drill with a toothpick connected to the old gear.

Totally random...started working once I stopped and parked for literally 5 minutes.

Something maybe loose?
