Fiat Ducato 2001 2.8jtd

Hello. And thanks in advance for any help.
I proudly own an 01 2.8jtd And the speedo has recently stopped working. Easy I thought , just whoop in a new speedo cable , but know it looks like the speedo drive and pinion problem.
All my local spares say they are not making spares for this vehicle any more which was apparent when I tried to get new wiper arms so does anybody have any thoughts or recommendations on a new part or who I might contact about fixing the old one . It looks OK to me but my mechanic said this is where the issue lies and not with the cable.
Thanks.

I would suggest removing the drive from the box with cable attached, with someone in the cab try turning the plastic drive and see if the needle moves,could be a worn drive.

If you're taking it out you can inspect the pinion anyway. There are different pinions, if you post your VIN someone will be able to check the correct number of teeth.

Re: Fiat Ducato 2001 2.8jtd

Have taken the drive out to see the nylon price from the drive tat connect to the pinion has broken . I think it will be a new drive as the nylon bit that was stuck in the pinion end is I am guess I got part of the drive.
Any thoughts on where to get a new drive. Thanks
