How do you adjust the speedometer cable on a 1998 Ford Escort SE?

Sorry to burst your bubble but their is no speedometer cable on

a escort, it utilizes a input and output speed sensor on the

transmission, and the Drivers information center uses a tiny motor

that receives a signal from the Ecm, it uses the output speed

sensor from the transmission to give you a vehicle speed. They just

dont build them like they used to.
