My speedo suddenly stopped working on the last trip. ±207 000km
I am no longer taking my bakkie to the dealers and need some advice.
I checked connection to the gearbox and couldn't s find a problem.
I am thinking of connecting the gearbox connection to a drill to check the rest of the cable?
Would this work? Is it a big job to replace the cable, do I need to remove the dash?

Another question. At which intervals do one needs to change the timing belt on 2.7?
