Disconnect the speedo cable at the tranny, pull the cluster (carefully) disconnect the top end of the speedo cable. Get your hands on a can of Slick 50 lube, (has a little nozzle on it). Squirt some down the inside of the cable housing. This stuff works great, my 87 300e had the same exact problem two years ago and it hasn't made a sound since. The cluster can be a bit tuff to get out, especially in cold weather. You'll need a couple of hooks to pull it with. I made some with a pair of aluminum knitting needles, just hammered them flat at the ends and bent a little hook into the tip. Work like a charm. Good luck
