Pull the inner cable out and grease it. I was able to do it from the trans side on mine, not all of them come out that way though.

Cable is out and the inner part is also out of the housing.  Looking for recommendations for cleaning and type of lubricant.  Inner part only is removal from speedometer side on a 66.

Found a good article for reading.  https://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/threads/what-do-you-use-to-lubricate-a-noisy-speedometer-cable.487390/

I wonder how treatment evolved over the years. In the 60’s maybe oiling the cable was part of maintenance

Check over in "Tech Resources". There should be a link to new cables (if you need one).

I replaced my cable last year and it cured the problem.

Tried a couple of things and cleaning etc.  finally put in new cable, no flutter; but likely routed wrong under the dash.
