Speedometer quit working

I have been having a problem with the speedometer bouncing around & then quit working. After doing some reading on here found it was probably the VSS sensor. Ordered a sensor & went to replace it this weekend & the found this car has a speedometer cable and it is broken just before it goes through the firewall. Went to the local autozone to get one & the guy there couldn't believe it had a cable, but none the less, they didn't have one. My questions are, not only were to get one, by how hard is it to replace the cable.

Is it a one piece cable from the gauge to the VSS or is it a two piece cable?

Two piece cable. The part # is F5RZ-17260-D.

Post over the contour.org troubleshooting. Someone should be able to help you there.
