Speedo cable change

1442 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  mserpe

It seems that the speedo cable is attached to the tranny right behind the large vibration damper (I think only LWB's have this damper). The damper makes it very tricky to open and change the cable.

Has anyone done this and did you figure any good tips that you could share? How tricky is it to remove the damper?

Now since I have the 6.17 gears installed, the speedo is useful again (closer to what my actual speed might be) and I'd like to connect the cable again. Only my old cable is so bad that it needs to be changed first.

The SWB G also has the damper. I believe that only diesels have it. They are a bit tricky to remove and reinstall.
