My speedometer quite working while I was driving it. Now it's making a clicking or ticking sound in the dash - only when the car is moving. I removed the speedometer cable and it looks like it is OK.

Asked by Sep 14, 2017 at 10:39 AM about the 1971 MG MGB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

what would cause the ticking sound and could it still be the cable if it's not broken and seems to turn well?

1 Answer


I think it is a worn or broken cable. Check out Moss Motors.
