Maybe you could drill a small hole in the plastic piece and use the bit to pull it out.

Hopefully the transducer assembly that mounts in the transmission is still OK. That's like a $200 part if you buy it new from Honda.

It's interesting that the speedometer cable is a two-piece design. On my 86 Si it's one continuous cable.

Can you take the transudcer assembly off? Never even looked to see if you could... but if so, remove it and get piece out and put assembly back on.

speedo cable

The transducer is the mechnical gear that the cable slots into if you have powersteering it will have two black tubes that go in and out to the PS rack this gives you the speed sensitive powere steering, their should be a 10mm bolt that holds a little plate in place that holds the transducer onto the gearbox, when this is off it's just a case of wringling it free maybe a bit stiff as it's probably never been off before, but it will pop out eventually and then maybe you can get it out with some tweezers or with drill or replace with another from scrapyard maybe TZAR might have one he's local to you well some country anyways!!

That's great!

Have you had a chance to see if your speedometer works yet?
