Speedometer cable retrevial

Recommended Posts

I have been restoring my 69 mustang conv which I bought new. But I’ve run into a snag and need some advice; I had pulled out the instrument cluster (all repaired) the glove box and original clock (all repaired) bought a new RetroSound radio (ready to install) BUT I started to put everything back (starting with the insturment cluster and found out that my speedometer cable has slipped down inside the car and I can’t find it! OMG. I’m having nightmares. To get this far and boom  any advice on how to retrieve it? I know it was stupid not to anchor it down..but it never dawned on me that this could happen. I’m gg nuts trying to figure out some way of getting it back so I screw it back on the cluster. Jeff. I’m in Columbia, SC. 8034466365

Welp, it shouldn't be too hard to find. Look behind the lower dash to the left of the steering column. It goes thru the firewall as shown in my pic.

If it's been pulled thru the firewall look in the engine bay below the master cylinder.
