Usually it's a little plastic gear inside the instrument cluster. They either strip or more likely they get a crack that allows them to slip rather than turn. As of a few years ago there were kits to...

Apparently there's this German hydraulic fluid that you can get at Napa that's really good for the power steering systems on German cars. I think it's branded Febi and comes in a white plastic bottle...

There are better forums for that:

I have never seen one, but every time I go to the junkyard and have a measuring tape I try to find one from something that would fit. I would love a glass one that just flips up.

Thank you! I took a break from wrenching on these for a few years so I feel like I'm back to learning again. Nothing wrong with that though, learning new things is always fun.

Well, I know you can fit an Audi V8 in a 4000, so I'm sure it would work. I've even heard of a W8, though I've never seen on personally. If nobody's ever done it I'm all for it. I know nothing about...
