Urgent Speedometer cable help please

I need a new speedometer cable for my n reg Cinq sporting. (Has been a clicking noise coming from the dash for ages now the speedos dead so pretty sure its that).

Do the non sporting models use the same cable as i'll probably go up to the scrappys and pick another one up.

Cheers all!

Re: Urgent Speedometer cable help please

looking at Eper, i've no idea - there is around 20 million codes for them.

Looking on shop4parts, there are two listed. One for the 899 and one for the sporting. Different codes, and different prices so i'm gonna go with nope they're not the same

Re: Urgent Speedometer cable help please

i nkow theres at least 2 for the sporting as i replaced mine recently.if you cant undo it from the top of the g/box , its easiest to access it by taking off the drivers wheel then you can get right at it. ps its about £20 from fiat!!!!!

its in one piece,its a fairly neat fit coming through the bulkhead as i found when i tried to pass it past my amp main power cable lol.
as i said it easy to access from the drivers side,i had the wheel of to do the lower suspension arms anyway.

Re: Urgent Speedometer cable help please

Right,cheers I only asked as mine has a what can only be described as a white lump in the middle that kept coming apart

Obviously I wont know until the old ones off but the ticking noise had been driving me mad! So im hoping that something just snapped up off the cable up where the speedo is hence it all stopped working

We'll find out soon just got to get out the office in another 5 minutes and get to my parents for some tools

If its a two part cable, identify which end the problem is and only buy that bit.

Cheers

Re: Urgent Speedometer cable help please

Well,I though id have a crack at it saturday,took off dashboard,eliminated the dial and upper part of the cable as if I take the inside of the speedo cable and put it into the dash it turns the dial,so that leaves the lower part of the cable and the gearbox cog....

But the lower cables already been replaced once! So its back to the garage to tell them replace it foc or my gearbox cog is fubared...

Nice

I'll be glad im getting a new car!

Re: Urgent Speedometer cable help please

oh another thing, the engine and box is not the original (done 93k now) so the chassis number wont help me.

Big up the fiat reliability!
