[DML] Re: MADDENING speedometer problem

Nick - it sounds like you've covered all the possibilities to me.  
Early on in my ownership, before I realized how the speedo system 
worked, I had taken of the wheel and was inspecting the 
dustcap/speedo setup.  There was some grime built up on the lip of 
the dustcap, so I wiped it clean, and also cleaned the rim where the 
cap seated.  Everything was nice and shiny clean when I reassembled 
things, but when I actually drove the car, I found my speedo no 
longer worked correctly.  It seeemd to work correctly at slower 
speeds, but as I got faster, it would jump around a lot, and 
sometimes drop to zero.  I had thought that the pressure from 
tightening the lug nuts would be enough to hold the dustcap in 
place, but it was appaent that this did not happen.  I ended up 
using a thin bead of lock-tite on the dustcap.  That fixed the 
problem and I haven't seen any other problems from my speedo since.  
You said you marked yours, and it didn't appear to have moved, so I 
may be barking up the wrong tree, but your symptoms sound very 
similar to mine.

Good luck,
