sam notsram: +Mike MiataKing    Hey Mike, thanks for uploading the video it was really helpful, I managed to successfully change the cable, however the speedometer dial does not seem to move as fast as the old cable when I accelerate any ideas? thanks

Manuel Rodriguez: Is true you are the king of miata


Charles Mcgehee: Mike,  You are a very skilled teacher.     

Robert Montgomery: Keep up the good work. I love the crown! Long live the King!  Just ordered some parts after speaking to Ann. 

chingon: so has any one tried removing the inner cable and replace it with another one
i would like to know if it is possible to remove it even though it is tight sealed 
i mean there must be a way isnt there?

Steve Moore: is the gold crown really neccesary???

John Ferrari: Hi again Mike. was able to disconnect the wiring harness from rear of speedo and thought that was it after taking for a spin ( it seemed at first to be quiet, BUT, not to be. Also learned that the harness controls the transmission/overdrive, as it would not get out of 1st gear while driving. Guess it's in the front end suspension - maybe idler arm?

John Ferrari: Hi King Mike. I'm pretty sure the cable in our 94 Corolla needs to be replaced, but it only squeaks when coming to a stop. it's as if there is a suspension problem. plus, there is no noise at all when accelerating or cruising; only when stopping and the noise is not a constant. A few times I've driven the car, first thing in the morning when cold and there was no noise until after a few miles had been driven. then suddenly the noise would start when slowing to a stop. last night it was very loud after being driven more than the usual of late and it also seemed noisier as I turned the steering wheel back and forth, making turns. I'm no mechanic nor do i attempt any fixes unless very simple.  This noise only started about 7-10 days ago. Your advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

Michelle Motsko: you are awesome! thank you so much! have thru two mechanics already and the third one was a charm. he figured out my problem and is fixing it.

drew loko: my 93 miata makes a sounds sometimes around 2 to 3 rpms and the speedometer needle never stays still it jumps a lil all te time is that what this?? if you could help me please and thank u mr king.

Michael G: Awesome video! My noisy speedo cable has been annoying me for months. Can't wait to replace it!!!

Mike MiataKing: Hello, Your problem could be the cable or the gauge or transmission gears. The cable will need to be disconnected to test the system. You may need a local shop to help with your speedo Mission. Mike. The King of Miatas.

Relentlessly Unending: Okay, I turned on my 94 miata this morning, and the speedo just doesn't work at all, is this the part that I need to replace?

ecksrichecks293: Speedo cable*?

ecksrichecks293: I've got a squeak you descibe at idle and very minor jumping with my speedo, but the squeak goes away after about 1500rpm. Still throttle cable?
