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.

It doesn't have a speedometer cable. The speedometer is operated electronically.

The speedometer cable on a 1987 Mazda 323 is located on top of the transmission and travels up to the dashboard. It helps the vehicle's computer monitor speeds constantly.

The speedometer itself will work but you will need to take the instrument cluster apart and transplant the speedometer unit from the 92 cluster into the 87 cluster. The speedo mechanism is the same but the clusters are different.
