speedo and fuel gauge doesn't work?

the good news is that i finally got the alternator done and car runs fine now. i even got it lowered on the koni rsk kit that i bought 2 weeks ago. i love the new feeling but theres like a 1.5 finger gap in the front and like a .5 finger gap in the back. well i guess i got to get my swap! ok now onto the problems. my speedo doesn't work from 0-50 but once it's over 50 its perfectly fine. the mechanic checked it and everything and said that the signal to the computer is perfectly fine. i haven't ripped the cluster out yet but i want to know what to look for when taking it apart. also, my fuel gauge seems is at full and it's supposed to be at half because i put like 232kms on it and i don't reset it unless i fuel up. what kinda problems could it be?

prolly could use a new gauge cluster, but if you can, try to swap with someone to see if a working cluster would function in your car. if not, then report back and we can work on it from there.
