Speedometer Cable for auto

Interior equipment auto parts: Speedometer Cable

How to detect the speedometer cable failure

To check whether the cable functions properly, you need access to the speedometer. For this purpose, dismantle the instrument panel. Then you need to hold the cable by hand and, while turning it, observe the speedometer pointer operation. If the part is correctly operating, you will see that the pointer moves smoothly, corresponding to the effort you apply to the cable. If the pointer moves in jerks, this indicates that the cable is defective.

You may identify that the speedometer cable has to be inspected by the following symptoms:

  • the readings on the odometer do not change;
  • the pointer of the speed indicator is jammed;
  • the speedometer readings do not correspond to the actual speed.

Causes of the speedometer cable failure

If too much force is applied to the cable in the course of repair, it may break. The vibration caused by regular car usage in off-road conditions is also destructive for the cable integrity. Also, the fasteners can get loosened, and the cable can disconnect from the gear or the speed indicator.

Vehicle use in regions with high humidity or extremely low/high temperatures shortens the component useful life. Besides, the part service life duration is affected by the quality of its manufacturing material.

Replacement of the speedometer cable

The speedometer cable is not repairable. In case of its failure, you have to replace it. For this perform the following steps:

  1. Unscrew the fasteners securing the steering column covers, and remove them.
  2. Dismantle the ignition switch seal.
  3. Dismantle the instrument panel by first prying the fasteners. Now you can work with the speedometer.
  4. Remove the nut connecting the cable and the speedometer.
  5. Unscrew the bolt which attaches the cable to the gear, remove the faulty part.
  6. Install a new component in the mounting seat.
  7. Reassemble in the reverse order.
