Hello,
I have been searching for a long time but not found an answer. i have a late 94 T4 2.4D.
It has the clock with a mechanical speedo and no rev counter.
Had the clutch changed a couple of years ago and pretty soon after the speedo became erratic.finally to stop altogether.
Finally got round to getting a replacement cable and installed. Still no speedo and it turns out the old cable was fine :eek:
Anyone got any ideas of what to do next, it was difficult to inspect the gearbox side as i did it on the drive with the van jacked up.
Thanks
Kev

Hi,

Yes, I am from Heritage.

To change the pinion you will first have to remove the pinion guide, the Speedo cable screws onto this metal housing. It is a little tricky to get to but it is reachable from the engine bay area or underneath if up on wheel ramps. Once you have unscrewed the guide you will then be able to remove the pinion.

Good luck

Neil VWH
