    1995 965.
    I need to feed a speed-proportional pulsed signal to a VDO navigation
    system. It sure looks as though the speedometer has several outputs
    that will suit this need. The question is, how do I pull the instrument
    cluster? This is a 1995 960, it does NOT have the two small
    cover-plates hiding retaining screws. Are the screws behind the wood
    veneer? Apparently the wood veneer is very fragile, I don't want to
    break it. Any resources on the web, similar to
    http://caunter.ca/volvo960/ but for after the 1995 redesign?

    Alternatively, is there somewhere else I can get this feed?

    Don't work so hard. There's a speed signal going to the radio (to turn
    up the volume as speed increases.) The speed signal wire is
    black-yellow and goes into to pin 7 on the 10 pin connector (That is
    the 3rd pin from the left side of
    the radio on the lower row)

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
    (But I check the newsgroup more often than this email address.)

    awesome! thanks! My wiring diagrams show about 5-6 connections to
    the speedometer, which I figured were feeding speed proportionate
    signals to other items. But I'm not comfortable tapping into a wire
    feeding a signal to the ABS or the AT. I'm willing to risk losing the
    automatic adjustment of the volume, though.

    Plus it's much easier to yank out the stereo than to undertake a
    dashboard adventure.

    This board is much better than Brickboard, where 3/4 of my questions go
