Dash dissassembly/replacing the speedometer cable ('96 SR5 4x4)
Yeah yeah, I know I only show up here when I have a problem >.> It's the best resource for 'yota info though.
So, due to some random stupidness (not my fault) my speedometer cable broke, and it's gonna cost me over $150 to get it fixed, or $70 to get the new cable.
Now, since the cable doesn't require a whole lot of crawling under it, I figure I should be able to get it fixed myself without too much issue. (My work space is an un-secured rocky dirt driveway)
I've already found where it attaches to the tranny, and have disconnected it to reseat it (in my troubleshooting/diasgnosing), so that's no issue at all. Routing it under the body will be a pain, but completely doable. I'm wondering though if anyone here can give me an idea of how hard it will be to dismantle the dash to get to that end of the speedometer cable (bearing in mind I've never torn a dash apart)?
Specifically, any specific tools I'll need that one might not find in a basic tool set, and anything weird I should be prepared to run in to (like something that explodes if you don't do it right because of springs, or something)
