The speedo drive is in the gearbox at the back, take off the cable and check the inner cable for breakage, spin the cable by hand rather quickly look at the speedo if it moves its the drive in the gearbox, if not its the speedo clock. To check the drive, take the drive out of the gear box, held in with one 10mm bolt, check for ware, if this is worn you can replace it but the problem is the gearbox lay-shaft it worn and the problem will re occur in a few months.

Where can I get laser repair specialists?

Your laser is stopped or I think it is not working properly. Because of That, you need some laser repair service.
Don't worry here I am to give you the best suggestion about laser repairs. There is one alma laser repair store. It is an online store where you will get good service.
Before one month they repaired one of my laser. And it is working well now. No problem is in that. In that online shop, you will get maintenance or comprehensive refurbishment services for your entire laser system.

Repair steering box

First tell me what is wrong with the steering rack and pinion. These units are not repaired they are rebuilt by a factory rebuilder, any attempt to repair without the proper tools is a waste of time and will not fix the problem.

My 1995 cougar xr7 v8 odometer stopped working. the rest of the cluster is working.

the problem is common and the fix is to remove the cluster assy and sent it in for repair to a factory approved repair center, the part needed to repair this are not sold to the consumer only to the factory repair centers, the cost to repair is modest, call the dealer for detail's of where to send it.

I have a 2007 ford taurus and my rear defrost doesnt work. I can hear the relay coil feed click when i push the button but nothing happens on the window. i just had one of the connectors reattached...

You need to check the defroster coil for continuity from one side to the other.If it is an open curcut[no continuity] then either the glue used to repair the broke off terminal was of the wrong type[non-conductive]or you need to find the broke strip and repair it.Automotive stores sell repair kits for doing this,and they work to glue the connecters back on.

Cv boots need repair work & bearings need grease packing.

I would strongly suggest you replace the whole cv joint. If it is clicking then the joint is worn out. Driving it with no grease will cause the wear to increase and become a hazard. The joint could break and you will be out alot more than just replacing the joints now.
