Strange Noise Under Dash

Hello ALL,

When I start the car up and drive it, after a few miles I notice a sound coming from under the dash. It sounds like this:

REEE-uuh, REEE-uh, REEE-uh

The frequency does increase, but I can't say that its tied directly to RPM. I also don't notice it initially and its not terribly loud.

Anyone have any experience with this? I thought it might be something with the speedo cable routing? I did replace the cable recently.

Thanks for any replies.

If the speedo is jumping it is probably a cable asking for dry graphite to lubricate it.
