Hi gav and eric ... the speed sensor is a cheap option to check, rather than replace the cluster ... they are approx £25 from your friendly dealer.
WARNING ... check that the rubber sealing ring (its green if I remember correctly) is in place on the electrical connector as water in this connector will play havoc with the speedo output. There was also a Renault mod in 2001 that put a large plastic shield over the sender and the connector to prevent heat from the engine damaging the rubber seal and letting the water in .... it can be retro fitted and costs about a tenner.
Carefully clean the connectors with a spray-on electrical connector cleaner and careful use of a fibreglass pencil, that will clean out any veridgris and corrosion that may have accumuliated ... be careful as the pins in the sender are very fragile. ..... its easier to clean if you remove it first ... its just pulls out ... lube the bottom seals with engine
hope it helps
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
