Remove dash instrument cluster, remove speedo, and check the inner spindle drive is not dragging against the magnetic drum that moves the speedo needle to show your speed. While you're at it withdraw the INNER cable from the speedo cable using a pointy pair of pliers and coat it with vasaline and reinstall. if it still plays up the speedo drive is stuffed
