GrimmWarrior19: If the EGR pipe is so hot, could that be the cause for cables drying out so prematurely? If so, then could you not further insulate the cable with some heat resistant cover or coating? This video was a great help, just wanting to take some preventative measures since I need to replace my cable anyways and maybe extend it's drive life.

Bill Geddes: Great tutorial, King- thanks for the tip spinning the cable to access the under-dash release!

Tripp M: Thanks for posting this video. I was a bit disappointed that after doing the speedo cable, I still had a rattle in my dash. Turned out to have a Mud Dawber nest in the ventilation duct! Fortunately it was easily removed with a vacuum and screwdriver. Now my lovley M is much more a pleasure to drive.

John G.: Mike, Thanks for the excellent instructions and also the parts to fix my Miata. No more noise! You rock!

is undisclosed: Thanks so much King! You identified all issues and made it easy. Keep on Posting!

TJ Forehand: Thanks Mike! Just replaced mine in 30 minutes (it was already on jackstands for brake work). I'm 5'8" and 260lbs with stubby fingers and short arms. If I can do it just about anyone can!

Olaf Henke: THanks Sr. This is exactly whats going on with my Toyota PickUp. I hope I manage to replace it.

Robert Putnam: Great video. I think replacing is far better than trying to repair an old part. I have learned the power of doing things once and being done. :-)
In the Marine Corps posturing and presence were always the big thing. . . if the uniform was not perfect, they would say, people will never hear the message. There is some truth in that, but there comes a time when we no longer have to posture, we can just have fun. . . and while you are having fun, you presented a great video. Thanks.

buck wheat: This guy needs his meds increased...

Justin: Love the sound effects you make haha

PjPjPaul: Thanks for this video!

Timothy Phelan: Seriously, thank you! You made that extremely easy and very detailed.

boingo102: thank you so much for this video, saved me so much time and money. 

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.     

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.
