G`day all
I took the speedo cable off my `90 navara, there was a little bit of oil, but i didnt take much notice.

Anyway, after I got to wollongong, (from jervis bay) all under the ute was coverd in oil. im guessing there is an o-ring or somthing there the cable joins? and that would explain all the grease as well behind the dash lol

is that a hard thing to fix? cant really afford someone to tell me its rooted

cheers all

One way to find out would be to go to your local agent and ask at the parts counter.
Doubtless they have a parts book that will show you what you probably dropped when removing the cable.

Yeah...go figure....lol


Speedo cable runs in oil normally from the gearbox. Taking the cable out opens up a hole in the gearbox....oh what a lovely smell.....lol
