    A while ago my speedometer and odometer quit working. I was in the middle of a cross country drive, so I took it to a Toyota dealership. They told me the speed sensor malfunctioned, but didn't have the part to replace it, but gave me all the info, part #, etc.

    So basically I'm wondering if anyone has ever replace the speedometer cable on their own? How difficult was it, is it something worth attempting on my own? Will it save a significant amount of money if I just order the part and do it myself?

    If it helps at all, the part number they gave me was #83710-35090.

    Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

    take that number and go to rockauto.com then see how much it is. should be cheaper then to get it from the dealership then try and google it and see if anyone has done it before thats how i found out how to change out my O2sensor. and you can try our search on here too might be some hits for it.
