Hey all,

I'm newish to all this and I was just looking through the technical documents, and came across the speedo calc. I punched in my details, and I'm showing up as about 5% different. Not wanting to buy new tires (just bought e set about 6 months ago), I was wondering what the speedo gear does, where it is and how you change it. Any pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Can you replace it without removing the tranny?

Unless the gearbox is hot, which they remain so for quite some time.
