How to remove speedometer cable from transmission

Removing a speedometer cable from a transmission involves disconnecting the cable from the transmission's output shaft. Here are the steps to do this:

Materials you will need:

  1. Wrench or socket set

  2. Pliers (optional)

  3. Safety glasses (recommended)


  1. Safety precautions: Before working on any vehicle component, especially one that involves the transmission, ensure the vehicle is safely supported on jack stands and follow proper safety procedures. Also, wearing safety glasses is recommended to protect your eyes from any debris.

  2. Locate the speedometer cable: The speedometer cable is typically connected to the transmission on the driver's side, near the back of the engine compartment. Follow the cable from the firewall or instrument cluster to the transmission to locate its attachment point.

  3. Access the cable attachment: In most cases, you'll need to access the cable attachment point from underneath the vehicle. Raise and support the vehicle securely with jack stands to provide enough clearance to work comfortably.

  4. Identify the cable end: The speedometer cable is secured to the transmission with a threaded or twist-on connector. Identify the end of the cable that attaches to the transmission.

  5. Loosen the attachment nut: Use a wrench or socket set to loosen the nut that secures the speedometer cable to the transmission. The size of the nut may vary depending on your vehicle's make and model, so check your vehicle's manual for the correct size if you're unsure.

  6. Twist and pull: Once the attachment nut is sufficiently loosened, twist the cable counterclockwise while simultaneously pulling it gently to disconnect it from the transmission. This motion should unthread the cable from the transmission's output shaft.

  7. Inspect the cable: After removal, inspect the cable for any signs of damage, wear, or kinks. If you notice any issues, it's a good time to consider replacing the cable.

  8. Close up: If you're not replacing the cable immediately, reattach the attachment nut to the transmission to prevent dirt and debris from entering the transmission.

  9. Lower the vehicle: Once you've finished, lower the vehicle safely from the jack stands.

Keep in mind that some vehicles, particularly newer ones, may use electronic speed sensors instead of mechanical speedometer cables. If you have a newer vehicle, consult your vehicle's manual or a qualified mechanic for guidance on removing the speed sensor or diagnosing speedometer-related issues.

Always work with caution when working on vehicle components, and follow safety guidelines to prevent injury or damage to your vehicle.
