Hey, I have a bad o-ring in my speedo gear, but I can't seem to get the freaking thing off, any tips or am I not removing enough bolts? I removed the 4 around it and blasted it with PB blaster, but it won't budge! I need to replace this o Ring so the speedo gear will stop leaking. I don't want to take it to a shop for something as stupid as this. Thanks

Are you trying to remove the speedo cable from the trans? If so there is a wire clip that you have to remove from the side and then pull the cable out. Is that what you are after or am I totally off? I think there is an o-ring on the cable. BTW automatic or 5-speed?

5 speed. well I have gear grease slowly dripping on the inside and was told by local part shop it was just a bad seal in the speedo gear.

Hmmm. The speedo cable goes in on top of the trans behind the engine. If you are leaking gear lube from the side of the trans it sounds like the seal where the axle shafts go into the trans. Can you give a better description of the area where the leak is?

EDIT: Just read your post again. Where is the grease leaking?

grease was leaking inside the car under the dash. I cleaned it all up, jus got done replacing the O-Ring seal on the speedo gear shaft, and put it back together. the speedometer still works (thank god) lol and we'll see if that fixed it. The gasket I replaced was really flimsy and frayed all over.

GeoZukiGTI guided me through it :D thanks to him big time! now we'll see how it does. This was my first time ever working on a car :O the whole point I bought this car was to learn how to fix/mod. Every1 has to start somewhere :)

There's actually a Suzuki TSB that addresses that problem. The defect is actually in the speedo drive gear mechanism, oil gets in there and can't drain out, so it starts syphoning up the speedo cable. To do the complete job, you requre new updated parts:
1) Speedometer gear case : 29431-60B00
2) Speedometer driven gear (M/T, GTi): 26131-64B00
3) Oil seal (M/T) : 26151-60B00
4) Pin : 09205-03036
5) O-ring : 09280-16012
6) Speedo cable : 34910-61b20
It'll cost you about $120 at the dealership for all of that.

thanks for showing me that, although I'm not going to spend 120$ if this 1.50$ fix works. So far no oil has dripped on me since a cleaning of the dash and the repair has been done, and I've driven 50 miles sense it. Gonna keep checking for next week or two and hope :)

I've had gear oil leaking from my dash too. Actually the correct word would be hemorrhaging from the dash. I fortunately had my carpet yanked out long before this became a problem. Right now I've got corrogated cardboard floor mats that are soaked from sopping up the mess, and yet it still leaks. I can see the oil is soaking into my instrument cluster, and it even got so bad that it burned out my brake light switch a few months ago. I intend on fixing this the right way. :evil:

Actually that car is getting parted out now. I've put my other Swift back on the road, and it doesn't suffer from gear oil leakage through the speedo cable. I did end up buying all the parts to fix the speedo cable from the dealership, but never had an opportunity to put them to any use.

If someone is looking for new SGP speedo cable, drive gear assy + all seals, gaskets and other parts I've got a brand new set I could be convinced to part with :wink:
