I dont like the sound of that although when I got the car I had a suspicion that I contacted the LTSA (The Kiwi Transport people) They said that there was no unusual pattern to the sppedo readings, which are logged as part of the WOF every 6 months.

What got me sus was a sticker in the windscreen for a service it reads

Date 11/06/05
Filter 182,000 km
Oil Grade 15/50
F Pads 5000km
R Pads 3000km
Plugs Replaced and LHM Filter Cleaned

Bear in mind it was 169374 km on the speedo when I purchased it.

Now I guess no choice but to confirm my fears and remove the casing to the speedo.

Hi Chris

Have not taken the speedo head apart yet but noticed these numbers on the lower left of the Speedo display

7/19 E1-22K6V

do they mean anything the numbers are both the same on my 19TZS and 16RS

Na mate, it's the number in the top right that makes the difference!

It could be something like this
09120299900

or
090120299901

or 090120299902

something along those lines will confirm it.

Of course you're speedo will read in KM's, so the number maybe slightley different, but either way, if you find that number, I can find out exactley what the heads for!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
