confused Speedo Calibration

converted my EB II to manual a few months ago,now i find out that the speedo is incorrect its reading 70kmh when it should be 60kmh and 130kmh when it should be 110kmh (looks like it was my car whataboutBEN).
any body know how to calibrate the speedo without taking the dash out e.g change the speedo gear in the gearbox.

thanks

The Speedo Sender is on the Passegner side of the Gearbox (Auto) from memory, and is further back towards the rear of the car than the Shifter Lever thingie.

As for working out what Speedo Gear you will need, check out

If you have problems with loading the page, then try again after a couple of hours.
The Website is being updated, and some things seem to be going awrily.

The speedo sender is on the driver's side at the rear of the box. The gear from your auto would read correct, if you still have it.
