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.
The drive gear is in the tail shaft of the transmission. The driven gear is on the end of the speedometer cable housing.
It does not have a speedometer gear. The speedometer is electronic and gets its signal from the ABS and transmission computers from the wheel speed and transmission speed sensors.It does not have a speedometer gear. The speedometer is electronic and gets its signal from the ABS and transmission computers from the wheel speed and transmission speed sensors.
If memory serves me correctly the speedometer is driven by a gear which is on the transmission, looking down from the top of the engine (below the airbox) should be a 2 wire sensor which is screwed into the transmission case.
Top of the transmission...
We had a speedometer problem it was the key that locked the speedometer driver gear to the transmission output shaft. The key was broke had to pull the rear housing on the transmission to get to the gear. Yea you have to pull the transmission. Ez
At the top the speedometer cable is connected to a little gear in the speedometer guage, and on the bottom end it is connected to a little gear in the car's transmission.
broken cable? Broken gear at transmission end? Broken gear at speedometer head?
DEPENDS ON WHAT YEAR. ON THE 1993 EDDIE BAUER 4WD - THE SPEED SENSOR IS PART OF THE SPEEDOMETER CABLE. THE SPEEDOMETER DRIVE GEAR GOES INTO THE TRANSMISSION DRIVEN GEAR (INSIDE TRANNY). THE SENSOR HAS AN ELECTRICAL CONNECTION THAT JUST PLUGS IN AT THE TOP.
Remove the speedometer cable and driven gear from the transaxle case. Wipe the gear clean and reinsert it. Pull it out again there is a small tab on the driven gear, there is a notch on the tab full in the first intention and below the tab add fluid.
1991 to 1995 Explorers have a conventional speedometer cable with a drive gear that is driven by the transmission on 2 wheel drive or the transfer case on 4 wheel drive. 1996 and newer have an electronic speedometer with a vehicle speed sensor that connects to the transmission or transfer case. 2000 and newer the VSS is combined with the rear axle sensor located on top of the differential.
Sounds like a grenaded transmission
