Why? Is the speedo not to be trusted? Another Renault oddity, lol.
Should be ok but just don't rely on it once the plastic work gets too hot - My needle sticks once its hot!

I had to remove the plastic work in the end - looks scruffy, but at least it now works...

Also, there is a speedo unit test procedure - Press and hold the button on the end of the right stalk (the one which adjusts the fuel computer) and also hold the fuel computer reset button at the same time - about 2 seconds. Then the dials will start doing their things. The speedo will go up in 40MPH increments - 40,80,120,160 and then back down in increments.

If the speed sensor is reading the road speed correctly, it will pass the same digital signal to the speedo that the test procedure passes. I'd say the digital speedo is more reliable than cable driven...
