Re: SPEEDO PACKED UP!!!!

I think the STi 2 has a mechanically driven cable. Have a look if the
cable has come adrift from the gearbox. Also look at the cable behind the clock set. Insure that the drive is fully home and locked into position.

Re: SPEEDO PACKED UP!!!!

Hi there really sorry to bother you again.

Lights sorted.

Just took it out for a spin and speedo still not working.

I may sound like a dim wit but ive just removed everything again and am i right in thinking that when you are driving the car the inner cable(speedo) should be spinning - because it isnt..

Could you give me an idea were to look for the other end and how do i tell whats wrong.

Just dont want to have to take into a garage if its going to be easy.

Many thanks again and sorry to pester you.

Regards Neil

No bother.

The inner cable should spin. I'm sure Alyn will help you with this speedo problem.


I would telephone him for some advice. Link: AS Performance - Rally Motorsport Specialists
