: speedometer removal - 85 RWD

08-26-09, 06:18 PM
one of my bulbs burnt out so i got some replacements and tried to get the speedo out. the 4 screws holding it in are off but the unit doesnt want to budge. i reached around to see if i couldnt disconnect anything from the back and ended up slicing my finger open pretty bad. :bonkers:

i dont want to break anything and it seems like i might if i keep pulling on it. how do i do this the right way??

The speedometer cable is locked in place with a metal tab which is prolly what you sliced your finger on. The cable is most likely what's preventing it from coming out completely. Not gonna lie, it's a bitch to get out and the only time I've successfully done it was in a junkyard so I didn't care if I broke anything. Good luck and be careful......
