Question about 1983 Honda Accord
My wife says it sounds like a ticking noise. I think the speedometer cable wire inside the cable needs to be greased but I don't know how. A mechanic did it several years ago by pulling the cable wire out from under the hood and greased it and it stopped the noise. I did it on a 1959 Chevolet by pulling the cable out from behind the speedometer but on the Honda I can't get behind the speedometer so it does look easier to pull from under the hood if I knew how to locate the cable. I am not familiar with front wheel drive and don't really know where the transmission is located, if that is where the cable is hooked into. Thanks
I've owned a couple of '83 Accords & the ticking noise is likely to be the trip odometer cogs sticking. Push the reset button and problem solved. Note: car should be stationary before pressing button.

Working at the transmission, pull the boot up the cable and extract the spring clip which retains the cable , on no accuont remove the bolt or lockplate or pinion might drop into the transmission .
