Hello, I've recently come into acquisition of a 93' Geo Metro that was swapped with a 91' Sprint Turbo. The speedometer cable has gone out in the past few weeks, and trying to find a local place that sells the right one I need has been a nightmare. I've only recently began to look into the beauty that I've come to call my first car, so some help would really be appreciated!

Rock auto lists them, I wouldn't bother looking locally, just order one from them. Fairly sure any one will work, but I have ran into the issue of the cars that have a tach cluster using a longer cable due to the speedo being slightly further away. I know this is true on the 95+ models but not sure on mk2&3 cars. I think the shorter cable can work, it's just a bit short to be ideal.

I did that swap to a convertiblr, including the tach cluster, and used the same speedo cable.
