Default changed both cv axles and now no speedometer

I spent yesterday and today changing both of the CV axles with some new ones I got From EV Technical. Axle swap was pretty easy, but after I got done this afternoon and took it for a spin, the speedometer showed 0 MPH the whole time. It was working before.

Anyone know where the speed sensor is or why it could have stopped working suddenly?

Thanks,
Don

Default Re: changed both cv axles and now no speedometer

Found the issue with the speedometer. The speedometer sensor is mounted to the frame right under the CV axle on the right-hand side next to the front transfer case. Apparently it's magnetic and Tomberlin has glued a small magnet to the CV axle housing to trip the sensor. I never noticed it before, it is on the old axle but not the new axle, so I guess Tomberlin expects you to tear it off the old axle and adhere it somehow to the new one...

I found today that the new CV Axles do have the hole drilled and internally capped to accept the magnet, so I was able to glue a new magnet in and the speedometer is working perfectly again! apparently the bullseye under the magnet is for alignment of the magnet.
