Hi, Typically a speedometer is a non-repairable item. You can remove the instrument cluster and take it apart and see if you can play with it and you might be rewarded for your efforts, but...? The speedometer cable might be disconnected at one end or the other or the cable might have broken then it's a replacement that will be needed. When you remove the cable, jkust spin it and see if turns, also see if the speedometer sill move when you have the instrument cluster out. If the speedometer is in fact broken, then your best bet is to try a local salvage yard, we used to cal them junk yards, and see if they have a Tracker that is the same as yours and buy an instrument cluster from them also check E-Bay. You should be successful with one of those solutions. Please get back and let us know more information if you need more help. Good luck and I hope this is of help to you. Steve H.

How do you remove the panel to get into the speedometer for Honda 1995 dx?

Remove the instrument bezel first. Pop out the emergency flasher controller and there is one screw behind there. There are two screws above the steering wheel as well. Then gently remove the bezel. The instrument cluster is next with four screws. After you remove those four screws, pull out the instrument cluster and unhook the three electrical connections. If you are removing the actual speedometer you need to remove the plastic case from the instruments. Pull off the trip odometer rubber piece and then there are six tabs that hold the unit in place. Simply pull it out while depressing the tabs. The speedometer then can be removed by three screws on the back of the cluster.

Where does the speedometer hook up to on an 88 Pontiac lemans?

The speedometer cable connects between the transmission and the back of the instrument cluster. To get at the back of the instrument cluster, it would be easiest to remove it. You actually can lay under the dash and remove the cable by pinching the connector at the back of the instrument panel and gently pulling it off. If you kink the cable, it will be ruined, but it's fairly strong. Just don't yank on it. At the transmission end, the cable can be unscrewed from the top of the transmission.

How do you remove a speedometer on a 1949 F-1 pickup?

The gauge cluster is mounted from behind the dash with three bolts. You have to reach in behind there and remove the three nuts with a small wrench. Once you remove the nuts, the gauge cluster itself will push back through the dash. From there, you can remove the speedo itself from the cluster. The speedometer only has 3 small screws keeping it mounted to the gauge cluster.


How do you replace the digital odometer light bulb on a 2000 Saturn SL2?

You will need to remove the instrument cluster board. To do that, remove the trim piece around the instrument cluster, then carefully pull the instrument cluster out of the dashboard. Note that the instrument cluster plugs in to a socket in the dashboard, so be careful as you remove the circuit board so that you do not damage the plug. Once the instrument cluster is out, replace all bulbs. They twist to remove, and if the odometer bulb has failed, the others are getting old too. It might be best to replace them all to avoid future problems.
