Speedo Cable Replacement Options
« on: May 22, 2021, 02:46:55 PM »
 Hi All,

            at 194,000 km my speedo stopped working. Checked the cable at the wheel and the slotted end is worn flat so it cannot be turned even with a screwdriver.  I have ordered the speedo cable assembly (44830-MT3-000) and it should turn up next week. The nylon gear in the wheel still works but I will put that on back order.

I note that I have two options:

1. Remove the windscreen, garnish and inner screen and replace the entire cable. I can see and reach the cable top in situ but cannot undo it with fingers.

2. Replace just the the inner cable for the moment and do 1. at a major service.

My question relating to 2: How do you get the inner cable out with the external cable still in place? The the inner cable at the wheel end is recessed. I cannot find anything at the end to undo or loosen.
