AFAIK the mileage is stored in the actual speedo-unit itsself.

And you have to get an EXACT SAME model speedo, as

they differ quite a lot between the different trim-specs...

Didn't they tell you what exactly was wrong?

What didn't work anymore? the neelde, the display? Boths?

I've dismantled quite a few speedo's the past year when replacing the illumination for other color LEDs,

but could you clarify what you want to replace when you say "dials"? The entire unit of just the needle-actuator?

I may be totally wrong (apoligies if i am) but i always thought if you replace the speedometer you need to have the replacement speedo paired up to the ecu, there is a guy selling a speedo on ebay and he is also selling the ecu ...worth finding out from toyota before you try to change it (found the link look below)

I don't know about the pairing up of the speedo to the ECU, but repacing the cluster is simple:

- disconnect your Battery: you'll be working with some of the main power distribution, so a shortcircuit is easily made!

- remove the cowling around the speedo by undoing the two scres behind the steering wheel, then popping apart the covers.

- undo the botls on either side of the speedo (10mm socket)

- slide the speedo upwards off of its' posts.

- undo all plugs, none are the same, so you don;t have to mark them.

- take out old speedo, put in new one in reverse order.

If I were you I'd plug in the replacement, set it on the posts and connect the Battery before I went any further with buttoning it up.

Now test the damn thing, so you know if everything works, THEN close the dash back up again.

I'm on my phone, so can't do a search, but if you do one youself you'll find a translation I did from a Danish website.

Bear in mind: this is NOT a simple task you can do in a couple of minutes, expecially without experience...
