How is the easiest way to repair the speedo drive worm gear on a Holden Trimatic transmission, it is loose and sliding along the shaft. Box is still in car and this observation is from the speedo cable...

remove the rear extension housing of the transmission( remove tail shaft and rear cross member--transmission pan on jack) the drive hear is held in place by a small spring clip that fits under the gear on the shaft. The drive is by a small ball bearing in the hole in the shaft
If the gear is damaged you should be able to pull it back off the output shaft of the transmission.
watch for transmission oil coming out when you remove the extension housing.

After placing my driveshaft my speedometer is not working HELP PLEASE

It isn't usually necessary to disturb either the speedo drive gear or driven gear when replacing a driveshaft so I am wondering if your car is an exotic or unusual model.
I seem to remember seeing one model where the speedo drive gear was a plastic ring-gear that was very exposed with the driveshaft removed and easily displaced from the side of the final drive differential by the careless refitting of the shaft.

If you remove the driven gear you should be able to see or feel the drive gear and ensure it is in line, still firmly attached and rotates when the road wheel is turned.
If all is ok there then the trouble is with the driven parts whether mechanical or electronic.
Good luck!

What does the speedometer cable screw into before the transmission??

most speedo cables attached directly to the adaptor that holds the drive gear in place in the transmission housing. This adaptor can be removed and the gear comes out with it . The teeth can be inspected and if they are not full and in tact then it is possible that the meshing with the drive gear on the output shaft is not happening. replacement speedo gears are available but you will need the one you have as the gears have several different teeth ratios to allow for speedo corrections

Just rebuilt my vl125 and my speedos not working as anyone got any ideas thx

try taking the cable out from the gearbox end and the speedo end. check that when you turn one end of the inner cable the other end turns, if it doesnt then the cable is the problem. as you sound like a technical guy then i am sure you know that.

i would suspect that it is the gear that drives the cable in the gearbox. a rather wacky but effective way of testing this is to remove the cable fromt he speedo end. hold it in your hand and roll the bike down hill whilst looking at the free end of the cable, if the inner rotates then the chances are it is the speedo or the connection at the speedo. if it doesn't then the little plastic gear is not driving the cable so look down at that end. whilst not wishing to sound patronising, are you 100% sure that you have assembled the speedo drive mechanism. let me know how you get on.

Whilst riding my bike suddenly the speedo stopped working,i have attatched the cable to my drill and it registered on the speedo,so do u have any idea what it could be,my tdr is on a 07 plate.

Check the gear inside the front wheel, there is usually a small bolt holding it in place where the speedo cable goes into, you will find the gear may need replacing.

Speedo not working

Hate to tell you but your gonna have to redo everthing you did and recheck the speedo cable. Make sure you didn't stripe it or the gears inside the speedo and make sure its correctly installed and not kinked anywhere.
Now for the real scary part the other end of this cable goes into the transmission's output shaft. If you find that the cable's end at the speedo gauge and the gauge its self is a-ok ...then you have to inspect the cable at the tranny end and the gear it goes to. If cable is worn no big deal ( you buy a new cable and install) but if gear is worn Uh.. have to replace outputshaft on tranny to repair gear.
I'm hoping you didn't correctly install cable on speedo.
Good luck

I have a 2003 vw golf. the speedo is not working at all. found speedo sensor broken and have replaced. also drive looks to be intact and doesn't turn. also tied with this is the fuel gauge fluctuates any...

if you replaced the speedo sensor and gear, the problem is the gear that drives the speedo gear. it is on the differential and is only replaceable by removing and disassembling transmission. this is somewhat common on vw's. the only other possibility is the wiring but i'd say its about a 95% chance you have a bad drive gear on the differential.

The speedo on my 1992 xr250r doesnt work, cable and speedo r fine, how do i remove and check the part of the speedo that is mounted on the front wheel

First, remove the lower end of the speedo cable from the speedo gear box on the front axle. Then, lift the front wheel off the ground and remove the wheel. To remove the speedo-drive gear box, unscrew the axle nut that holds it in place. With the speedo-drive removed, inspect the two flanges that fit into the slots on the wheel hub, making sure they haven't gotten bent - or sheared off. When you turn flange on the speedo-drive, it should turn freely and you should be able to see the speedo cable drive-blade spinning. If not, then you will need to replace the whole unit because the worm gear inside has become excessively worn.

How do I remove the Speedo cable in a 1995 ford aspire

I am not convinced that the speedo cable is a good place to add the fluid.
If auto trans , should have dipstick tube. If manual trans , should be plug on top , or half way up side of trans that can be unthreaded.

Fill trans fluid

I have been around and around this with the "experts" at the Stealership and I am looking at the same diagrams that they have. They are wrong!! Everybody says that it is a 3/8" square drive plug, NorthEast of the driver's side CV axle but there is no such plug there. What you want to do is locate the speedo cable! (well sort of) These cars don't really have a true mechanical speedo cable. What they have is a little drive gear that creates a signal and sends that signal through a wire to the electronic speedometer. On the Esteem you will see a black plug with wires going to it, right behind that bracket that holds the two shift linkage cables. Think of it above the differential. Just look at the shift cables and look right behind the bracket that holds those cables. There is a 10mm bolt holding the plug in place. You'll need a very long extension. Once that small bolt is freed, you can pop that black plug and wires right out. On the end of the plug will be a plastic gear, it should be oily. I believe the gear case holds about 4.2 pints/2.1 quarts. Good luck!
