Question about 1986 Ford Crown Victoria
I need some directions on installing a speedometer cable in my 86 Crown Vic
The vehicle will have to be jacked in the air safely to remove the cable from the trans.Some fluid will come out too,so have a catch basin in place.You have to climb onto the floor board,and lay on your back looking up into the underside of the dash.Locate the speedo cable and follow it up to the speedo head with your hand.When you reach the area where the cable dead ends into the speedo head,feel around for a locking clip or tab.You will either squeeze or lift the tab,and this will release the old cable from the speedo head.Pull the cable through the firewall grommet,and remove the cable.Reverse to reinstall.There may be a plastic gear on the trans end of the cable that has to be removed and reinstalled on the new cable.The gear is removed by removing the metal retainer clip shaped like a horseshoe.Good luck.
