Speedo Problems

I recently noticed an intermittent problem with my speedometer. At times, it registers nothing. I figure the speedo must be electrical and there must be a sending unit on the blink? Is there a common failure point/part that I should look into replacing? Unfortunately, it is an intermittent problem, making investigation difficult. I hit a bump, and the speed came back on...

Any ideas or suggestions appreciated. Oh yeah, 1993 RS America. Thanks!

That sounds like my old 928. I know in the older 911's (pre-1989) there is a connector that is accessed from the plate right in front of the rear seats that tended to corrode and would cause the same problem. I don't know if our 964's have this access point.

Mine does the same. I tap the glass and it comes back. It'd be great to find out why and how to fix.

Mine does the same, but on the temperature gauge. But only when the car is warming up, I tap the glass and the needle goes up to the correct position.
