eeeiiii ..... eeeiiii .... eeeiii

... is a speed related rattley noise coming from the area directly behind my speedo. What do we think? Is this the beginning of the end for the little cog in the speedo that I've oft read about in various postings?

An African Squirrel? So I should just let a snake into my glovebox and let nature take its savage course then?

"You can't claim supreme executive power just because some watery tart throws a sword at you"

All kidding aside, it is probably your speedometer cable (you do have an early model don't you?)

If yours is the later model, you would be correct: the odometer gears are on their way out.

ditto on the speedo cable. to be honest with you, Juvat, I never did hear gears squeak when they are on their way out. is this an issue peculiar to the 944-51?

IN truth, I've only seen it once or twice myself - usually they just shatter into lots of tiny pieces

It isn't that hard connects at the speedo (duh) and is routed to the drivers side wheel (applies both to 944 (LHD and 945 (RHD) models

well of course. I was just curious if there were any major things that made access to it difficult as I've never actively had to look for mine

Cheers. It is the earlier model with the old style dash. Last time my cable went - some five years back - it just stopped working one day. That's why I wondered if it was the gears this time around.
