Hi. Haynes says "either unscrew the collar and disconnect the drive cable or disconnect the wiring plug from ther speedometer sender" - I guess depending whether you have a mechanical or electrical speedo system.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Slide under the vehicle and see if the cable to the speedo gear was re-installed. It may just be hanging there. If it is not a cable make sure you plugged in the connector to the speed sensor.

Broken sunroof. on one side (left) for a: 1993 vw passat cl

Each side of the sunroof has a cable. Over time, the track gets dirty and the mechanism sticks, which causes the cable to break. Continuing to use the sunroof will cause additional components to break. Repair involves removing the headliner. I spent $700+ to get mine repaired, which involved spending about $400 on special order replacement parts. Sunroof repair is fairly specialized and not something that the average Joe is going to be able to figure out.
