Change mileage after dashboard replacement

Post by Fiodor » Fri Jun 21, 2019 2:15 am

Hello allihopa,

The dashboard has been replaced on my V70 and unfortunately the mileage on the donor car didn't match (240k on mine and 315k on donor).
Is it possible to set the mileage to the real value because right now I only have a handwritten note in the service book with the mileages when the swap was done?
Can you read the mileage from the ECU or is it only stored in the dashboard ?

Thanks for the help!
