[b][i]OK, so i bought this escort and the dials have been changed without changing the engine, the mileage is very very low,the 2009 MOT says [approx] 100,000 and the 2010 MOT says [approx] 120 miles? - Oh and theres no indication that the engine has ever been changed,especially in the last year? - i don't have the old dials to put back in, so i was wondering if there was a way of putting the mileage back from 120 miles up to what i think is a pretty good estimate of 110,000 miles,i thought if this can be done then its only right to add 10,000 miles which is the average per year, but i have no idea how to do it...[/i][/b]

I would advise you not to change anything. It may have been changed before and the actual milage may read 100120 miles, which in the Escort would show as 00120.
It is possible to change them but you could easily be accused of altering mileage if you ever come to sell it.

[b][i]Thanks for replying vinnyvangough, So it seems i'm going to be tarred with that brush when i come to sell it anyway as it's already been altered before for what ever reason?, probably for the white dial effect clocks - the clock actually now reads [u]0123[/u][color="#FF0000"][u]0[/u] [/color][/i][/b]
[b][i]I have all the history info and MOT info to back the real mileage up.[/i][/b]

[b][i]I will PM you, my e-mail in case you don't want that sort of info on this site,which is obviously understandable![/i][/b]
