Anybody out there ever change the gear lube in their 5 speed?  Looking in
the Bentley Manual it says to pour in the new fluid through the hole that
the speedometer cable goes into.  What size Torx does it take?  Are there
any special things I need to know when removing and reinstalling the
speedometer cable?  TIA
