Get a small screw driver or something and push the pin to the left, and it will pop the retainer loose on the other side. Now when you want to change a number move all of the numbers including that one to the left. From there you simply roll it to desired number.

Now look out everyone, he'll be putting a car up for sale soon!!!! j/k
Please for anyone else who is doing this for questionable reasons, just remember what goes around comes around! (No pun intended)
Thanks. I checnge my oil every 5k miles, and currently, for my odometer I change the oil at 135,000, 140,000, etc.... This is the main reason i won't to rool my new gauge cluster to the same mileage of my current gague cluster. That and I don't want it to be off in anyway at all. I want to keep everything legal and "true".

Now that I think about it. I can live with my gauge cluster as it is now, I will just wait until i reach thhe same milage as the new odometer which is only 3xxx miles from being the same. I really didn't want to take anything apart and mess with the needles.

Brian is right for Pennsylvania. I have a friend who's going through automotive school right now. If you show up for an inspection and the odometer reading is off from the year prior they are not supposed to inspect your car. Not exactly saying it's illegal, but technically if you can't get your car inspected than you'd be driving your car illegally in PA, so don't do it if you're in PA. Other states obviously will have different laws.

What if you had purchased a new gauge cluster that had lower mileage without rolling it to the correct mileage, how would you pass inspection? Would you just have to have proof that it was swapped out at x amount of miles? If you purchased a brand new one, it would be set to 0, right?

I ended up waiting until the odometers matched and then swaped them. I didn't want to mess with the needles....

Well, I can tell you how to turn off Onstar. Do nothing. Onstar is not a BMW product

Now BMW assist, on the other hand...

I'm glad this thread became a big joke to everyone....it's not like the main gauge cluster (speedo) ever goes bad.....

I know you can't roll the odometer back, but couldn't you just roll it forward all the way past 999,999 and continue up to desired mileage? Would that work?
