    Default R19 how to remove speedo cable from trans?

    Hi all,
    In the fun (!) process of removing the manual transmission from my R19, wonder how does one detach the speedo cable from the trans?
    The trans has a white plastic sleeve , into which a black clip and speedo cable enter.
    The clip does not wish to slide out when disengaged, is it just a matter of more force?

    Thanks
    Spiro

    I have a pretty neat and tidy Haynes manual for the R19 if someone wants to buy off me.
    I asked before but nothing seemed to happen in relation to it.
    I also have a brand new headlight for the series 2 also if anyone is keen on it. Maybe i can send thru the post to the lucky person??
    (sorry maybe this should be moved now into the for sale section) hehehe
    No seriously if anyone needs or wants these send me an email or PM....its just taking up room in my already tiny laundry....

    all right - sorry for this being late ( I had an environmental industry dinner last night that was basically a massive piss up paid for by the boss )

    the haynes manual simply says to extract the cable wire retaining clip from its locating holes on the rear engine mounting bracket, noting its direction of fitting. Then simply withdraw the cable. easy peasy.

    There appears to be more than one type of speedo cable trans end
    retaining method. The Haynes manual says to remove the wire clip
    from the trans mount, but my R19 didn't have that type.
    It was simply a matter of squeezing in together the black plastic clip upper arms, and then sliding up and out of the white sleeve in the trans.
    But as the metal end of my speedo cable had corroded and had joined
    itself onto the drive gear, this required extreme force, and resulted in lots
    of broken plastic bits (and a new cable required too, but unavoidable.)

    Thanks all for your advice.
