What's the most likely candidate? Finally deciding to get it fixed & if there's a point that 95% of them fail at, I'd like to pass it along to fixing guy. (I have a spare cable I bought with assorted parts after I bought the car.)

Yeah, 95% of them fail at the 90 degree bend in the speedo cable just after it comes off the transmission.

I know on AE92s which have the same transaxle, the weakspots are the lower speedo cable (good, easy to replace) and the plastic gear on the diff (bad, gearbox has to come apart). It's easy to remove and test the lower speedo cable.

I asked the MR2OC group on Facebook, got answers of 1) cable 2)plastic gear on the sender and 3)the cluster. To which someone replied immediately after "well that's all 3 places LOL".

This is why I haven't bothered with or since I found GRM.

Same issue with the FX16 when I got it. It was the cable. Got a new speedometer cable from the dealer.
