Heading to work this morning a noise like screaming demons from hell started coming from behind my instrument cluster. It starts at about 5 mph gets louder up to 20mph and levels out. The Speedometer is still working, but is a little shakey. My guess is the cable. Has anyone changed one? '79 300D How do I get the smell out of my seats? just kidding.

It probably is the speedometer itself. I should have a used one in stock if you are interested. You may be able to repair that one, or if you would like to send it to me I can try.

Hi Jason,
I gave up and put the car in the shop this week. The mechanic trimmed off the end of the cable- it was rounded from years of use, lubed the cable and gears- it is now quiet again- thanks-
