you don't say what year your golf is but most are just a simple case of removing the front facia , usually held in with a couple of screws,on later golfs you have to remove the stereo. Unscrew the speedo dials and reach around and unclip the power blocks and speedo cable this lets you tilt the unit forward and unclip the bulbs. new bulbs can be bought at a auto store and replaced easily. the longest part is removing the facia

The speedometer doesn't work. It doesn't respond to the speed we are going.

It depends on the year and options. Which year model are you asking about? On the 1996-2000 cluster, there's a light between the tach and speedometer for the cruise control (if equipped).

Tach is driven by a motor signal, speedo is from the trans the sensor is bad on the transmission

you have to pull the entire speedometer cluster on the back of it you will see little lights turn them until they come out and replace them with new ones

For lights behind the speedometer/tach warning light area, you have to take the screws out of the panel and then guide it out enough that you can twist it sideways and pull out the burned out bulbs. Replace with bulbs #194 and I would use the Long Life version of the bulbs.

There isn't one, you shift by "feel" or by the red tick marks on your speedometer ,|,&.

The Mazda tachometer and the speedometer have separate cables. The tachometer cable probably does not work properly. Change the tachometer cable.

You may need to replace the speedometer fuse. The speedometer cable can cause your speedometer to stop working. The speed sensor can also cause the speedometer to stop working.

For any of you who may have been watching this question, I'll give you the answer myself. The answer is YES. After purchasing the one with the factory tach and installing it, everything works like it should.

If you only need bulbs then your solution is easy, however if the needles themselves no longer illuminate, then there is no bulb to replace since the needles are the bulbs. Your local Lexus dealer will be happy to assist you in this matter, there is one catch...they will only sell you the entire instrument panel. The last quote I got was around $300.00.

I'm not sure about the speedometer, but if the tach is not working a good bet would be the tach filter. With age, a wire often breaks off on these. Look in one of the service manuals to find location. The speedometer may have a similar sensor, but I'm not certain. Thanks! I will check out the book ASAP. Appreciate your answering.

I had this problem, the lights around the tach were out. Are you ready for this? You have to replace the entire dash assembly! Mine was done by the dealer I bought my used 2001 Aurora from, Chattanooga Saturn. It would have been several hundred dollars. I am grateful to Saturn of Chattanooga! Andre'

Remove the dashboard cover. Remove the retaining ring, from the speedometer. Remove the speedometer cable from the back of the speedometer. Reverse the process to install the new speedometer.

If the speedometer is not working it probably needs a new speedometer cable. If the speedometer is actually broken either take it to as speedometer repair shop or replace it.
