when my alernator went on the ek4 sir the speedo didnt work.
the alternator and speedo are on the same fuse. check the fuse first, if not you should checkthe alternator to see if its charging

sounds like you might have sorted it dude

mmm....well all signs point to the alternator then
now you will have to check if its charging. will need a volt meter, should be pushin out aroun 13volts
