Best Answer

you have to take the dash apart...that is the speedometer assembly. once you start to take the cluster off, the speedometer cable is snapped onto the speedometer. you take that apart and the cable will pull out. be sure to put your bolts that you pull out of the dash in order so you do not confuse where they go...plastic strips easily.
