the odometer needs to come out. look for several Phillips head screws that holds the trim panel surrounding the odometer. once you have clear access, you should see 4 more screws holding the unit in place. once you have those, gently pull the unit towards you. Unplug the harnesses and undo the speedometer cable. Once the unit is out, you'll see the blubs and their sockets.

hope this helps as I'm going by memory.

Not positive but logically speaking the dash odometer is at one end and the gear or senor in the trans is at the other. Replacing the gear in the trans, if it's gear driven, is just replacing the gear assembly by unbolting it from the trans and disconnecting the cable from that assembly. Check the gear (turn) to see if it turns within it's housing. Not moving, replace. If it turns as it should, it should be o.k.. Replace the gear assembly. Next turn the end of the cable which fits into the gear assembly while having someone else observe the dash odometer to see if it moves (bounce's. If it moves, replace the gear assembly and push the cable down into the gear housing as far is it'll go and secure it with it's retaining clip. Take a test drive to insure it works. Still doesn't work? Try to push the cable further into the gear assembly. If it still doesn't work it still could be the cable but you must remove the cable end at the dash odometer. Don't know how much room there is under the dash of an E350 but the other Ford product I chased this problem on the dash panel around the dash cluster had to be removed. After removing the cluster from the dash, the cable end can be removed easily. You also need to remove the cable from the trans end. Then have someone else hold on to one end of the cable shaft and you turn the cable shaft at the other end of the cable. If it doesn't turn at both ends, replace the odometer cable. Then attach the cable to gear the odometer in the dash cluster. Again turn the cable shaft at the trans end to see if it makes the speed indicator move (bounce. If it moves, replace the cluster, dash panel, and reinsert the cable shaft into the gear assembly and test drive . If it still doesn't work, you'll need to dissemble everything at the dash end and replace the odometer. If the vehicie does not have a odometer cable (instead has a wire cable between the gear sensor in the trans and the dash odometer), remove the gear end connector with the wires attached, clean the pins in that connector with a minature wire brush, bend the tips of the pins slightly, and reattach to the gear assembly and test drive. If it still doesn't work, replace the gear sensor. Still doesn't work, the dash odometer in the dash cluster must be replaced (see above).

On the older model Tempo the relay was located in the front seating area, driver side, under dash, mounted above fuse panel.
