Speedometer oscillates

Hi guys.

My standard speedometer oscillates in the first part of the range (0-40 Kph).

How can I repair or solve it?

your speedo cable is binding you can fix it by unhooking it from the back of the head unit and pullin it out and spraying lube on it then put it back in, or just buy a new one

i'm not positive of the subaru needles, but i experienced the same problem with my toyota gauges and the reason it was doing so was because the base of the needle was cracked, allowing less than desireable tension on the speedo spring. a little bit of superglue should do the trick if the problem is similar.
