Purchasing the correct year range is very important! The early-model snap-in speedometer works with 1980-85 Vanagons; the late-model snap-in speedometer works with 1986-91 Vanagons (the term "snap-in" refers to the speedometer cable mounting provision, which can be either snap-in or screw-in). 

Early vehicles (80-83) with screw-on speedometer cable require the purchase of a new speedometer cable of the snap-in type, part number 251-957-803E, sold separately below.
