Default 01 GT Speedometer question (intermittent issue)

My speedometer is getting stuck occasionally at 75 mph. It only seems to get stuck at 75 as I'm decelerating. If I slow down to about 55 (using a gps to know) then the speedo will kick down and work again.

It also did this to me at 110mph.

I took the dash apart and the needle is not binding on anything so I'm guessing an electrical issue with the gauge?

Any advice?

Possibly the servo motor for the speedo going bad?

I've called around and nobody seems to think the servo is a part I can get my hands on. I'm told I need to replace the gauges.

Please tell me otherwise?
