Speedo Needle Bounce

Anyone else with mechanical speedo have a bounce? It bounces by as a much a 5 mph when not accelerating. My buddies all have Cherokees but 5 say they got nothing but 1 guy has it as well. My guess is that its just a the little plastic gear is not settling in the little perfect spot that it wants to be in, or its just a product of old, worn technology.

Possibly the housing for the cable is worn thru.

Technology is fine. Most likely your cable needs cleaning and greasing.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.
