At the instrument panel end or the other end? at the instrument panel end its either a knurled nut which must be twisted off (unthreaded) or a retaining latch which must be depressed. if you feel behind the gauge and you don't feel a knurled nut then you probably have the latch. feel for the end of the cable then press down on the latch and press in on the cable and then the cable should pull right out. at the transmission end it's a knurled knob, unless it's 4wd then it's on the transfer case but it's still a knurled knob. hope that helps.

On my 1998 Honda passport the speedometer is not working correctly I need a blue print of the motor to find how it works.


Your speedometer is analog (mechanical) and therefore has a cable that goes from the back of the speedometer to the tail shaft on the transmission. The cable may be broken or simply disconnected on one end.

My speedometer wont work but everything elsle is fine


If your car isn't moving, the speedometer wont work. Make sure you are moving.

Seriously, a little more info would be nice.....but to start with, the speedometer cable is connected to the back of the speedometer and to the transmission. Have you removed the ends to see if there is any damage? You should be able to spin the cable end on the transmission and get the speedometer to register a speed.

Transfer case removal


Suzuki Samurai/Sidekick/Tracker 1986-1998 Repair Guide
Transfer Case Assembly - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Samurai Models
Even the 2WD Samurai uses a transfer case. Rather than use a straight line driveshaft from the transmission to the differential, the Samurai leaves the transfer case in place and replaces its internal working with a simple offset gear mechanism, thus keeping 2 of the 3 driveshafts used in the 4WD vehicle.
  1. On 4WD vehicles, remove the transfer case shift lever.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Drain the oil from the transfer case.
  4. Matchmark and remove the driveshafts from the transfer case assembly. Not all of the driveshafts need to be completely removed from the vehicle, just unbolted from the case flanges. In most cases, the shaft or shafts on one side of the transfer case can be repositioned and supported out of the way.
  5. Support the transfer case using a suitable transmission jack.
  6. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the transfer case.
  7. On 4WD vehicles, disconnect the 4WD switch lead wire at the coupler.
  8. Remove the three mounting bolts and/or nuts securing the transfer case to the chassis, as applicable.
  9. Carefully lower the transfer case from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position and install the transfer case. Tighten the mounting bolts to 159-248 inch lbs. (18-28 Nm) and/or the mounting nuts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (25-34 Nm).
  2. On 4WD vehicles, connect the 4WD switch lead wire at the coupler.
  3. Connect the speedometer cable to the transfer case.
  4. Properly refill the transfer case with an approved type of gear oil.
  5. Align and install the driveshafts to the transfer case.
  6. On 4WD vehicles, install the transfer case shift lever.
  7. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
Sidekick, Tracker, Sidekick Sport and X-90 Models
On these models the transfer case is bolted to the transmission and takes the place of the 2WD transmission's extension housing. Therefore, transfer case is removed or installed as part of the transmission assembly.

Hope this help (remember rated this and comment).

The speedometer isn't working?


Sounds like the speedo has not been re connected. If its a cable it might have come out of the gearbox end within the cable sleeve.

Speedometer wont move


You probably have a broken speedometer cable. Was the needle wagging back and forth and making strange noises periodically before it quit working?

Speedometer and tachometer not working


My 1998 Elantra speedometer is also not working.  Before it went, the car seemed to stutter a few times on and off.  I think the speedometer driven gear needs to be replaced but I'm not sure.
