Have tried to get behind dash for a couple of items, not a pleasant experience, way too many wires and a big jumble with many installers. I was able to take out about 50 ft of excess wire and half a dozen connectors as PO used techs to install stuff, they only wanted the item they were installing to work, grab a hot wire and add a connector even if tech before did it six inches away. I would take many pictures, try to trace source see if a direct route could be made and maybe even bundle like they do for automobiles.
On the odometer, I do have experience with a dodge that failed, when I got it apart a plastic gear lost it's teeth, and while checking it more fell off, seems like they made it to disintegrate. Gear wasn't replaceable but rebuild shop would do it for 100. Checked ebay found a complete cluster for 25 and was able to put the speedo and odometer from it. This is one of the places I wouldn't want a tech to be working, upside down, cramped and the possibility of messing up other stuff.
