Argh - speedo cable was wobbly for a while and the cable has snapped and taken out my PAS as well. Someone on here did warn me that had happenned to his.

Any ideas on how much damage to the PAS ? Is it going to need new servo?

Do I have to remove the dash to replace the cable?

Nightmare - first nice weekend we've had for a few weeks and I am back in the escort van.

Oh just noticed that the PAS uses a speedo signal, so hopefully that will work again once I replace the cable !!

However - it looks like there's three different cables - so I will have to dismantle to find out which bit is broken, how annoying!

yeah the PAS will be fine, i was running without a speedo for around a month... before i was able to get a transducer (cable less type) you should notice the pas kicks in on startup then goes off after a few miles,

but as soon as its all fixed it goes back to normal..

One cable joint behind the plastic cover in the front boot, the other underneath just in front of the offside front wheel. Pull them apart and pull the cable sections out for inspection. If you have to change one of them, the one form the gearbox would be a swine, although you could try just replacing the inner from a scrappy) and hope it won't just fail again. Weirdest thing was I had all these symptoms, looked at the cables, couldn't find anything, put them back together, and it's worked ever since!

Hi, picking up an old thread,, does the PAS use a speedo signal even on a MGF-97 with speedo wire drive gear (not the speedo transducer)?

Yes, the EPAS uses a signal from the speedo, even on a '97. It does not from a drive gear specific to the EPAS, the signal comes from the speedo.
