First, how about more RTV or something? There's no pressure behind it because....
Unfortunately, it's an $85 part. Got it from 2002AD. It's a plastic sleeve with the speedo gear with an o-ring on the outside and a metal sleeve in there too. In other words, an assembly. It's probably just the o-ring (mine was) but I detroyed the thing getting it out. It fixed it though. So the second time around I would try to find a way to slide that thing out without wrecking it to just put a new o-ring on it. BTW, my dealer had no clue but 2002AD knew what I was talking about right off the bat. FWIW. To get the one out the only thing I could think of, which I don't have and don't know exists, is a pair of pliers where when you squeeze, they OPEN instead of close. If the ends are pointy and you're real strong that might do it. But it just yanks out. I greased the new one just in case I put it in wrong and had to remove it, but I still had to hammer it in. Good luck.

I have a transmission fluid leak where the speedo cable goes into the transmission. Someone tried to fix it with silicon but it didn't last. Now what?
