[DML] Re: speedometer



hi Andy,

Behind the left front wheel is the connection for the cable (angle 
drive). Disconnect the cable there and have someone look at the 
speedometer while you turn the inner cable. Movement of the needle 
means cable okay. No movement? Disconnect the upper cable at the white 
box under the dash and check again.
Usually when not properly greased/oiled the angle drive is the cause of 
no speedometer functioning. However it also could be the yellowish cap 
at the outer centre of the left front wheel that moves the connection 
to the angle drive.
Anyway, it's always a good idea to regularly lubricate angle drive and 
cables (thick engine oil or grease). That keeps them going for a long 
time (mine has not been replaced up to now).

Welmoed.
