To get to the speedo gear you need to drop the transmission and seperate the front diff housing from it. The speedo gear is driven by the front diff. I would make 100% sure that your problem isn't something else before opening that can of worms.

I should have mentioned that it is a FWD car. The speedometer & cable are fine. It has to be that gear.
Is the repair for a FWD unit still the same??

Are you absolutely positive that is the problem?

The speedometer base is a very common point of failure for these cars. I replaced mine last summer. I was driving along and all of sudden it just died.

If you haven't pulled that base out and confirmed it is still working. I highly suggest you do that.
