Wanted - Speedo cable (inner/upper)

Post by saintjamesy89 »

Hello all, I need the inner or upper speedo cable that attaches to the back of the speedo for my GT. I have bodged the current but unsure how long it'll last. Thanks.

Mk1 and MK2 cables DO differ, however I MAY have a new old stock Mk1 somewhere Tom, not sure which part it is as they are in two pieces.

On a Mk1 the come in through the bulkhead behind the driver on RHD cars where on Mk2 they came in behind the glove box and ran behind the dash.

I have emailed Chevronics, thanks.

If you wouldn't mind parting with it Tim, I don't want to relieve you of your spares stash for your GT. But it'd be great if you had one for me :D

Just had a reply from Chevronics, they have a genuine citroen one for £51.60 all in. I think I will wait on you having a look for the moment Tim!
