The Mileage is stored within the Cluster itself.. To get the cluster reprogrammed I know a place that will do it for $220 with Core

I just went to the junkyard and tried my luck with a couple of Clusters that the guy there let me power up on my car to check the mileage..

as for the Cluster its a single Levered Plug ( Plug has a black lever on it to hold it securely) the front bezel is held on by 2-3 screws and the cluster is held on by 4 of its own.. after that just carefully unlock the lever and unplug then plug in the replacement thats pretty much it.. as for dealers 99% won't do a mileage adjustment's to prevent fraudulent mileage (Rollbacks/Adjustments) there also worried that if they allow it that they will rollback to get more warranty service :)

The best way to do it is buy one with a little more mileage than you currently have, then when the mileage gets to be the same, swap the new one in.
