      if you want $70 just to replace the rechargeable batteries, I'd hate to get a price to replace those rubber gears that run the odometer. I am not a engineeer myself but that is a a piece of cake job.

      Try replacing the SIL batteries in the guage cluster. I have done several
      times myself. These rechargeable batteries die after awhile requiring new
      ones to be soldered in. As an aircraft engineer by trade, I troubleshoot and
      repair all day long and I like to repair audio/electronic equipment in my
      spare time. I will replace them for $70us (including parts,supplies, and
      operational test-drive in my own e28) plus shipping. Not very hard to do,
      but extremely easy to screw up-$$$$! If you're not sure, Don't Do It!
