    Speedometer Cable Broke

    Hey guys. My speedo stopped working so I pulled the cable off and found a pin on the speedo drive. Is there supposed to be a pin sticking out of my speedo drive at the wheel? I thought that the two pins were on the actual cable. Do I need to pull this pin out? I have already tried wiggling it it feels like it is part of the speedo drive. Any help would be appreciated.

    It's happened to me before, the bit of cable that goes in the speedo drive broke off and got stuck in the drive. Get a pair of pliers and use a bit of force, if you stick can't remove it, spray some WD40 on it then let it soak it up then give it another go. Make sure you re-grease the speedo drive after if you use WD40.
