Re: Speedo

What year? most are a electronic sensor in the gearbox very easy to change.
However on very early tipos i think it was opperated by a vacum, not to sure tho. If you remove the dash board you'll be able to see.

when I bought mine the Speedo worked, then it died... for a long time, then one day it sprang to life... for a bit.. then died.

The plug that connects to the gear box needed adjusting I made sure the connector where tight and plugged it back it. Never failed since.
