    yes for any vehicle the speedo cable should be disconnectable from the back of the speedo cluster, but i do not know the specifics for your particular vehicle.
    lubricating it might not fix it - it might be frayed. so if you are going to the trouble to get at it , you should consider swapping it since it's an inexpensive part. not sure how difficult it is to get at the cable on the transmission side, or to 'thread' the new cable however.
