[DML] Re: Speedo Cable Support

My car does not have the support (vin 2277) and the speedo has 
never worked right. I expected to find that the angle drive was 
toast but instead it only needed lubrication. I observed that the 
sheath was pulled back a little from the cable allowing the cable 
to droop. I reversed the cable so that the good end is connected 
to the angle drive. So far the speedo has been working more 
reliably but I do not expect  to fix it completely until I install the 
support and the shorter cable.
