Speedometer Access

Recommended Posts

Just changed out the driven gear on the transmission output shaft.  Have the replacement cable in hand. How do I gain access to the rear of the speedo?  Do I have to remove the entire cluster? Or is there a way i can get through the access port in the firewall?

VW Beetles are real easy, just lift trunk lid.😉 Most other cars require laying on your back.😡

not sure what type of car you're working on, but usually you remove cable from back of speedometer and pull the cable out of the housing. you then feed the new cable in, after applying a liberal amount of white lube on it. next step is to remove lower end from speedo gear an connect new cable into the hole in the end of the gear. tighten everything up and you're done

Not sure if it is the same car, but he had a thread about a 65 buick Rivera not long ago. Seems to be another person who thinks we can read minds to determine what they need.

His posts have been about a 1965 Buick Riviera, so....probably for a 1965 Buick Riviera.

Sorry. Should have made myself clear. Thought I was posting to a specific board; the Buick Riviera board.  Sorry guys.

 

Figured that it was easier to access the back of the speedometer by removing the fuse panel and box. It worked. (ppphhheeww, one guy recommend taking the dash pad off)

 

Thanks for your help everyone.

we often joked back in the day about needing a special "J" tool..... a trained monkey.
