Speedometer problems

Recommended Posts

My '87 has been making noises from the speedometer. The noises vary from squeeking like a bunch of mice to sometimes a grinding noise. The squeeking has become more consistant, while the grinding is on cold days. Additionally, on the cold days the speedometer will register very high speeds. According to it, I've gotten to 75 mph in 3rd gear!


I have seen different on-line stores advertise "speedometer gears." There are lots of different gear sizes/teeth.


Is servicing/repairing a speedometer something a novice can do? Or do I send it out to a repair shop? For instance, http://www.autoinstruments.com/index.html
