remove the drive shaft on rear wheel drives and remove the tailshaft cover the speed o gear will be on the shaft

Pay attention, the question was where's the 'driven' gear, If you follow the speedometer cable down to the transmission, the cable is screwed onto a connector on the tail shaft cover. When you remove the cable you see a bolt or screw holding that connector to the housing, remove the bolt and pull the connector out. That gear on the end of it should mesh with the worm gear, (which is the drive gear), on the tail shaft. The seal is on the bottom of the threads where the speedometer cable is attached between the screw on connector and the gear. A black O-ring about the size of a mans wedding ring. this is for all conventional rear wheel drive vehicles. If you have a very new care or a front wheel drive car this could look very different but in any case follow the speedometer cable to the output side of the transmission and look for a way to pull that connector out.

Where is speedometer gear on a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe?

It doesn't have a gear driven speedometer, it is electronic.>> The "gear" you refer to is called a "tone ring". Actually it does have one, called a speedometer driven gear, also sometimes referred to as a speed sensor. It is a gear driving an electronic sensor. It is located next to the rear engine mounting. If you follow the gear oil drain plug upward on the clutch housing, you will find a electronic plug with two wires. Next to it is a bolt, which holds the gear pickup in place. It is in the worst imaginable place. Another way to find it is by removing the air intake filter and pipes. If you have good lighting, you will find it next to the engine mounting. Follow the wiring harness as a guide. Good luck.

Where the speedometer cable attaches to the transmission, that piece should have a clip holding it in the transmission. The clip should be held in with one 1/4 inch bolt.
