1994 Ford Escort Question: Speedometer removal

 

Question

Mike94Escort, 1.9L 4 Cylinder, Crystal City, MO, January 21, 2009, 14:58
 Rookie

My speedometer makes a rattleing noise, and the needle likes to wave at me when I go over forty mph, and usually shows me doing about 10-15 mph over what I really am. I tried pulling the gauges out, but something is holding them in place. I've taken all the screws out. So how do I get it out.

    Usually the speedometer cable gets dry and loud, I would change that before pulling the gauge

    Had the same issue with my 99 escort. I ended up replacing the speed sensor and the speedometer. Replace the speed sensor first and see what happens
