The cable has most likely come detached somewhere, did this b4 when changing white dials. Had to take the instrument panel out an i pulled the speedo cable to much an it came away from some housing in the engine bay.

Its i bit awkward to get to, believe me i have the cuts. Your best bet is to pull out the grommet in the foot well where it passes through. The get some1 to wiggle it whilst you locate it in the engine bay. By the way you need to be under the car to see/get to it. You wont get to it from above, unless you remove the airbox/feed pipe, exaust manifold...etc etc

Nope, you need 2 hands on it (no pun intended) one to hold the casing bit, one to push the cable through into the casing. I found the best way to get to it is remove the drivers side wheel, as its just through there...hard to explain really.
