I have talked wth 4 other people who own the 96 windstar and theirs all do it too...Just another Ford mess up !!!

A2: I had a 95 that did it and I pulled the speedo head out and lubed the cable. This solved the problem. Once you have the head removed you can pull the internal cable out lube it and reinstall. Of course mine was a mechanical speedo. I am not sure on a 96 but I think it is manual also.

Where the cable goes through the firewall near the brake master cylinder the cable has a place you can separate it by unscrewing a connector. Without doing this it is virtually impossible to remove the head. Believe me I tried before I figured that out. Then it was easy. Good luck. MGL
