ROW Speedo Cable Replacement

With the long weekend upon us I'm (finally) going to replace my speedo cable. I've searched on here and Google'd without any luck on how to replace the speedo cable on a ROW truck. I've got a general idea of what I'm getting into but any information, pictures or links would be helpful. It's RHD with a short LT77 if that makes any difference.

You should download the genuine workshop manual as it tell you how to do things.

The speedo cable is pretty self explanatory. It clips to the speedo with a round plastic clip that you squeeze together to release. The transfer case end has a small fork holding it on with a small stud and nut.

loosten the nut on the stud over the clamping ring on tcase, slide retaining ring up (no need to remove nut or retaing clamp/ring, pull cable out. Insert new and clamp it back down. Inside truck remove the 6-8 screws holding gauge binnacle in and gently pull it out to limits of attached wiring reach behind speedo and feel the plastic ring that secures the cable to the back of the gauge, there will be two pronounced tabs that you will feel squeeze there this will release the cable from the gauge. You will need to feed it through the bulkhead rubber grommet. feed the end of new one through rubber grommet and attch to the back of the gauge and bob"s your uncle. There will be several/or should be several clips or zip ties holding the cable on its path up to the gauge but that it. 15-20 min job max.

Thanks for the info. For some reason I was thinking this was a lot more of a PITA than it sounds
