Yo!! Right as usual – and I should have spent a bit more time answering you. When you unclip the speedo cable (it’s easily accessible one you lift the instrument panel cover off), you need only drive along your street to determine if the cable is turning or not. As Scott says, it’s all too easy to make the wrong guess and buy a part that wasn’t the cause. How do I know? Because I have done that in the past!! Talk about a slow learner!!

actual visual inspection and real diagnosis before searching for a part.
the right thing to do is, unclip the speedometer cable from the back of the speedometer ..
and with the front wheels turning ..
look at the upper end of the cable and see if it's turning .
if it's not, I'd undo the bottom end at the front differential ...
if the drive gear is turning there..
it does sound like a speedo cable all right.
I see a lot of people 'decide' what part could be faulty and get that part as the first step ..
which often leads to you getting the wrong part, or one that you don't need, or not all the parts you need, etc.
