Thanks for the info "dingdong. I will try this, as I was not looking forward to removing the front to access the darn thing. I wear a small or medium glove, so with a little luck, I will get it done without a big hassle.
If all you are replacing is the interior portion of the cable, all you need to do is diconnect the cable from the front wheel and pull the old cable out. The new one will slde right back up into the speedo box. You will need to turn the cable while you do this but its a snap. I never had to take the dash apart.
