Next issue....
I get it...push the clip bit down & the cable should part from the dial. Mine doesn't. Am I missing something? The flanges cable is partly separated from the dial, but I don't want to force it. Any suggestions?

If the speedometer was working then the cable will come away from the speedometer head; sometimes it needs a wobble though, or the speedometer head may need to be pushed back onto the cable a time or two before the cable will let go.

I'll keep trying. The Speedo does work...if you want to do 30 or 60! It stutters a bit! It tends to get stuck at 30, then springs into life above 60. When I play with the cable the needle drops to 0...strange. has a life of its own. I want to remove the clock to see if it needs cleaning or lubricating

Inner cable may be frayed or broken, hence difficulty in detaching cable from speedometer head.

Have a look at the transmission end: inner cable should rotate with no binding.

Hi Phil
I'm starting to fear the worst on this cable...Can you give me any relevant part numbers for the cable assembly if possible? Or any sources of supply? To confirm, mine is a CF2 with 5 speed Opel box
Thanks
