    Default Replacing AX Speedometer Cable

    Hey all,

    My AXGT's (Series 2) speedo stopped working recently, altho briefly sprung to life once after that when going around a corner, and I'm guessing the cables going to need replacing.

    I just rang my mechanic, and it's going to cost me a fair amount of dollars to do, as the dash etc needs to be removed..

    Just wondering if anyone out there has done it before and whether its a job I could do myself instead?

    Cheers,

    Put the same message on andyspares.com. There are loads of UK Ax and the guys there im sure would have done this before.

    The speedo cable on an AX, like most other citroen cars, comes in 2 parts. There is a short part on the gearbox, about 12 inches long (from memory, I may be wrong) which screws into a longer part that goes through the firewall and into the dash. It would be worth your while to check which part is broken first don't you think? I've had 4 AX's, but they were all series 1 cars, so I can't really help you with how to get the instruments out.
    It really shouldn't be a difficult job though, as long as you have a selection of torx screw drivers. One problem you might have though, is the steering wheel WILL need to be removed. Does the car have an airbag? I've never worked on a car with one, but I know there are important things you need to know about it before you start, to stop the airbag from going off! john s
