BUMMER, you have to open the trans to get it back out. You cannot operate the vehicle as this part will certainly be forced through the gears.... You may be able to fish it out with a wire, but this will be difficult.....

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

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

My speedo dosnt work i know the problem but i cant find the part its the part at the end of the cable(cant really describe it) any help appreciated

At the lower end of the cable is the speedometer drive gear box. At the upper end of the cable is the speedometer. Usually, it's the cable that breaks, but sometimes (perhaps this is what happened to your's) the gear box becoms dried out and the worm gear inside it will wear out. You can't buy the gears by themselves, so you will have to replace the whole speedo drive gear box assembly. Likewise, if any part of the speedo cable is broken, you've got to replace the whole cable.

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.

95 camry speedo meter and odo meter stops working all of a sudden again it starts working. Some days the check engine light glows with odometer off light and after couple of days it works fine Please help...

It sounds like the Speedo cable is going bad remove the cable connector on the side of the transmission and twist the cable and see if the odometer moves, you can also pull out the cable from this end and check the Speedo end, if it's bad it will be rounded off rather than square. If the gear in the transmission is bad you can put the cable into the end of the Speedo gear on the transmission and try turning it if it turns around say a half turn or more then the gear is bad, all you do is pull out the bolt and the small horse shoe clamp and wiggle out the gear and go buy a new one at the dealer or transmission shop, if the cable is bad you can buy a cable kit for $12.00 the gear is about $10.00. The check engine light would come on because the Speedo is malfunctioning and uses the info from the Speedo to input injector pulse width.
