Re: [DML] Two Problems

Hey Jake,

I'm assuming when you say you turn the cable at the
end and the speedo works, you mean the end of the wire
in the driver's side wheel hub.  If that's correct,
there's a "dustshield" that goes on the very end of
the cable - it's part #105104.  It is a "cream
colored" cap with a nipple in the middle.  The nipple
has a unique shape to it.  It's square on one end and
rounded on the other.  If this shape gets worn away
due to just naturally driving the car, the cable won't
spin with the wheels rotating, and the speedo won't

Check this cap and see if it's "rounded and worn" as I
would say.  If so, time for a new cap.  If it's not
that and you oiled the inside of the angle drive as
you said you have, have you disconnected the upper
speedometer cable from the top of the lambda counter
for any reason lately?  I did once to luble up the
cable just for preventative maintenance, and I didn't
properly screw the cable back down into the lambda
counter.  My speedo didn't work, so I went back and
re-inserted the cable correctly and boom - speedo
worked again.

Just covering all the bases I can with my past
experiences.  As for the window, I'll let someone else
answer that one.  I have no experience there - yet =(.
