    Not really much to it.
    Disconnect the bottom side off the Tcase.
    Lay down on the floor under the dash and reach in with your hand following the cable to where it connects to the speedo, the is a tab that locks it in, with one finger lift that tab and slip the cable out.
    Pull the old cable out, and then route the new one in, reach in again and put the speedo end at the speedo and push till you hear a click.
    Go down under, and spin the internal piece to make sure it slipped in without bind, and then reconnect the lower part.
    Takes me about 10 min
