Remove the cable at the accellarator pedal it is held in place with a pin. Follow the cable to the firewall from inside and make sure it is not attached to any brackets sometimes gm uses a bracket to keep in line.If it does there is a plastic clip that you have to squeeze with a pair of pliers and pull the cable out. Under the hood the cable is attached to the throttle body with a bracket. Remove the cable from the pin and then remove the cable by squeezing the end of the cable with a pair of pliers while pulling on the cable. The cable goes thru the firewall just pull it out . All you have to do is reverse the procedure to install.
Hi, from what i can remember their is no speedo cable on your car its all electronic, but to rind the electronic pick up from the box you need to look Under the car on the right side of the transmission near where the\015\012right drive shaft comes out. There are a couple of wires coming from\015\012the pickup.this is where the speedo gets the reading from now it could be this pick up thats damaged and may need replacing.
how ever if its not that part the the chances are the problem is going to be behind the dash, if this is the case then your going to need to remove the clocks to get to the back of the speedo to replace the part at that end.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

if by some chance it is cable then the cable will be in the same place as the pick up so you will tell if its cable or not just by looking and seeing if its a thick cable coming out or a sensor with 2 wires coming from it, it it is cable then it just unscrews out of the box and then you need to remove the dials in front of driver and pull them forward to allow you to undo the other end of the cable that end, you then need to follow the cable so you can see where it goes through the bulk head into the engine compartment and just run the new one the same.

im pretty sure yours is electronic but just looking will tell you which it is.
