Frontera A speedo cables no longer available?

Postby stemon on Mon Jan 22, 2018 10:59 am

Hi all, Just had my speedo stop working on my frontera A 2.8 swb only to find it snapped,

So contact vauxhall to be told they no longer stock the frontera A cables and it will be a breakers yard only.

Im guessing this isn't a common thing to snap but no replacement part means we are stuffed? :lol:

I recently changed to trooper diffs as you cant get diff cover plates anymore , Becoming harder to keep this frontera now.

Will a trooper one fit?
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here
