Replacing the speedometer in my 2006 Mustang V6

Trying to be an specialist I messed up in the little plastic parts inside the fuel needle motor, so I suppose the only alternative is to buy another speedometer.
But first of all I would like to know what is the correct replacement part.
My car is a 2005 V6 Automatic. What years can fit mine?

Thanks

You can get the stepper motor for the gauge cheap on eBay (I'm assuming that's what got messed up from the description):

wow, thats a huge find for a bunch of people that are having problems with cluster gauges and just want to keep what they have. i couldnt see putting the 140.00 he wants to repair the oem cluster, but great price on the motors for diy guys.

Thanks for the info, I've already bought the motors on ebay this morning ! So, I have to get a good electrician to replace them.

I just bought a set of four stepper motors today too.. I ordered from that same ebay listing. I called the guy and he said he fixes a bunch of these... the stepper will come with instructions, but he said it is pretty easy if you can solder. We'll see. It's my speedo that went nuts just the other day. I have 71k on my car and has been fine until now. I was going to just replace the speedo, but he highly recommended doing them all. This is supposed to be an upgraded motor from the original. From all of the postings I have found about this instrument cluster's problem, I am gonna replace them all. I will try to repost once I install.

It is about a 20 minute job if you just change out the spedometer. I have a my color with 74000 on it if anyone want one for 100. plus shipping.

It took me about 1 and a half hours to pull the cluster, replace all four stepper motors and then reinstall the cluster. You need a soldering iron, solder, and a desoldering tool (solder sucker). Each motor is soldered to the circuit board by four connector pins. You desolder the four pins and gently pull the motor, if you desoldered correctly it should pop right out easily. Install the new one by aligning the four pins and pressing the motor onto the board. Solder the four pins and your done. Repeat with the other motors. There ar instructions that come with the motors. The trickiest part was removing and reinstalling the guage needles into their exact spot.

Thanks for the feedback. I see a lot of posts regarding failed clusters. So this will be a great thread to direct people to if they want to repair them. Great info.
