SYMPTOM/CONDITION

Grinding or ticking sound in speedometer area.

DIAGNOSIS

Road test the car to verify the condition.

NOTE:

IF VEHICLE IS WARM (ABOVE 60 DEGREES) THE NOISE MAY NOT BE READILY APPARENT.

The noise may be caused by interference between the cable housing connector and the dash panel opening. Use the following procedure to correct the
interference condition.

REPAIR PROCEDURE

1.

Disconnect the battery ground cable.

2.

Remove the speedometer cluster. (Refer to the appropriate 1983 service manual for Removal Procedure.) The printed circuit board may also need
to be removed for drill motor clearance.

3..

Release the spring clip and push the speed- 
ometer cable housing back into the instrument 
panel housing far enough to prevent damage to 
the cable during drilling or grinding. Cover 
the cable housing to prevent chips from enter- 
ing the cable.
