Speedometer Replacement, Compliance with Governmental Regulations

When replacing a speedometer, Federal and or State regulations require that the odometer of the replacement unit be set to the actual mileage of the
vehicle or at zero miles.
Federal regulations allow the replacement speedometer (odometer) to be set to the true vehicle mileage or to zero miles. If set to zero miles, Federal law
requires that a label be affixed to the left B-pillar (near the Safety Certification Label) of the vehicle specifying:
Vehicle mileage before the speedometer replacement.
Date of the speedometer replacement.
A speedometer replacement label is included with replacement speedometers.
Fill out label completely and affix to the 13-pillar (near the Safety Certification Label).
Fill out the speedometer replacement section of the vehicle Maintenance book completely (including Dealer Stamp) for warranty record purposes.
If a label is not included with the replacement speedometer, order labels through your Parts Depot using Part No: W55SPEEDOLABEL (quantity 1 = 50
Connecticut is unique in requiring a replacement speedometer (odometer) to be set to the actual mileage at the time of replacement.
For vehicles in the State of Connecticut, the dealer parts department must notify the Parts Depot of the correct vehicle mileage when ordering a
replacement speedometer. The correct mileage will be set prior to shipment of the speedometer to the Dealer.
