$25! I can get a whole cluster from the junkyard for that price.
Sadly my odometer passed away 2 weeks ago...

spend $25 and fix it correctly the first time.

most of the clusters in the junk yard will be broken too. if you do managed to find one that works, it wont work for very long since the factory plastic gears suck.

My ODO on the left doesn't work anymore. The tripometer on the right still works though, so I can still tell how far I've driven. I keep a log book to track my MPG, so I use it to keep track of my total mileage too.

Yep the originals usually fail by 130K or so, lots quicker if it sets outside in the sun... Basically they become soft and crumble to bits, so if you want the repair to last, buy new...
