WTB Upper Speedometer Cable E12 based

Post by KarmannMarco » Wed Aug 12, 2020 3:08 am

Hey guys!
Having a hard time finding this one and I already contacted Elias in CA.
I'm looking for the upper speedometer cable for a series 1 (E12 based) 1981 633.
It must be from a manual car as the cables in automatic cars are shorter.
This cable goes from the speedometer to a bracket/box under the car right under the passenger foot well.
I already found and replaced the lower cable from the bracket to the transmission so I do not need that one.
In the picture the above cable is the one I need (the one below it is from an automatic car and they are considerably shorter as I found out)
I'm in Colorado.
Thanks in advance!

Just take your old one to any speedometer shop to copy and they will make you a new one for a lot less than any of the parts houses
