99 Legacy Speedometer

99 Legacy Speedometer
The speedometer on my 99 Legacy is intermittent. I suspect a bad vehicle speed sensor. Called autozone to order part and they said there are two of them. I easily located the one on the upper right side of the transmission but don't see the other anywhere. It's supposed to be on the left as you're sitting in the car. Any advice? My car is a standard, 2.5 liter engine, I wonder if it's different in an automatic?

RE: 99 Legacy Speedometer
Sorry for the delay in response. Here is some info. I found.

The speed sensor 2 is a Hall IC pick-up type revolution sensor. (MT model)
This sensor is installed on the transmission case and detects the transmission output gear rotation speed.
4 pulses are sent to speedometer per rotation of speed sensor driven shaft.

I wouuld susupect it to be located near the output shaft on the transfer case.

Thanks for the info. I had already called a Subaru dealer and the parts guy checked the manual using my vin number. He said he only saw the one speed sensor so I ordered it. I'll let you know if it fixes the problem after it comes in and I get it changed.
