Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

Ive done a search for you and have come up with what I think you need - click the link HERE..

That is the cartridge that the cd discs load into - and then the whole thing goes into the changer unit - Im sure thats what you need....

Contact the seller - be sure its what you need.

As for the speedo - the fault is usually whats called the " speed sensor"..

I would honestly take your car to another garage and have them check this for you and then go from there...

Try this site HERE to help you find a local garage that you can trust.

Given your description of the fault - I don't see it being the gearbox at all !

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
