I don't think it's possible to change the mileage. We had to have a new panel fitted by a Ford dealer due to a speedo problem. The new panel started from zero and I'm sure the dealer would've set it to the original mileage if that had been possible.

I just put a prominent note of the mileage when the panel was changed in the service booklet. That way I couldn't be accused of trying to mislead anyone about the true mileage. That's also important when it comes to working out when to carry out various service items such as cambelt changes.
