Re: 200TQ speedo shakes, odo stops
I'll s-mail it to you as that will get you the best quality for posting to
I suspect this is not the same problem as afflicts your 86 though. I think
this is specific to the 89 and maybe newer ones. They use an electronic
sensor whereas yours uses a cable. I've had problems with the speedo in my
87 5ks for a long time. Mostly evidenced by noisy in cold weather. Colder
= noisier, and cold weather is not far away. I tried lubing the cable,
etc, but NG. Finally took the instrument cluster to the local VDO speedo
repair place and they claimed to lube it. A year later I was back and they
claim they replaced a bushing in the speedo head. I think it still makes
noise but will have to wait for colder weather to know for sure. They
charged me both times. I am not happy about the thought of carrying it
back to them a third time. Unfortunately there is only one place in
central Ohio that repairs these and they act accordingly.
I refuse to pay them a third time but will give them a chance to make it
Does anyone have any alternatives to suggest if my noise returns? Swap with
another used speedo?
Ship it to Overseas Speedometer in Texas?
