[DML] Re: Speedo Cable Support



Thanks. It seems I have a long lower cable.

Even though I started lubricating my AD at every oil change as soon 
as I got the car, it went out on "Angle Drive Alley" on a road trip 
to Phoenix and has since been replaced.  

I lubricated the lower cable at the same time, but have not 
lubricated the upper.  I do get a little bounce, so I'll pay 
attention to the upper next.
