Where does the speedometer cable on a 1995 Ford Windstar connect to the transmission under the dash and how do you change it?

on the 3.8 from underneath the car follow the speedo cable from steering coluumn area across the the transmission you can feel the cable and the vss sensor you can't see it. the exhaust pipes restrict acess but it is possible to remove without exhaust removal jack up vehicle remove drivers tire. it really helps if you have someone to help at this point you need a 10 mm swivel socket several 1/4 extensions about 20 to 30 " of extensions. 1 person holds the ratchet from the wheel well while other person guides socket to the retain bolt and tries to hold socket on bolt while helper turns ratchet this will remove the vss pull wire cable and sensor back in thr direction of the cable. the speedo cable is a 2 piece unit the lower half can be removed . once vss sensor is out disconnect wire and cable. I haven't ever been into the dash areas so I can't help you on that end. Doing the lower end can be very difficult good tools small hands and mechanical ability is a plus the speedo cable connects into the vss which enters transmission it has a gear on end which is driven. it all pulls out once the 10mm bolt is removed 3/8 ratchet and extensions may also work

you will need to change out the speedometer cable or if your lucky its just loose and fell off the back of the dash depending on the car make and model

To change the speedometer cable on a 1990 Toyota truck, disconnect the cable, feeding it through the grommet, then disconnect it from the transmission. The process can then be reversed with the new cable.
