Are you sure it even has a cable? If it does, you need to remove the instrument cluster and disconnet the cable from the speedometer head. You should then be able to just pull the cable out. If it's broken off, you'll have to remove the cable housing from the transmission and just replace the entire thing. My 93 Prizm doesn't have a cable, it's electronically controlled by a Vehicle Speed Sensor on the transmission.

This is very common on the 1996 Ford Escort unfortunately. Basically the speedometer cable has to be re-greased or the speedometer has to be replaced with the older 80mph model. Both "fixes" require disassembly of the dash to get to the cable/speedometer. See the ford escort owners association for more details/instructions.

According to my Haynes repair manual, 1996 and later models do not use a conventional speedometer cable. They use an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
