Not very elegant, so make sure fixes are out of sight but blutac can work. Best fix for little things like this though, are those foam rubber sticky pads (sticky on both sides). I used these on a previous car where the wiper surround was touching the windscreen and causing a buzzing when it vibrated at certain revs. Just push em down with a cocktail stick or something.

You'll find suitable pads at stationers, B&Q and the like.

Mine is doing exactly the same and it's driving me up the wall aswell!! Definately from the speedo, only way I can stop it is resting my hand on top of the dash and holding it down!!

My dad used to have the same car and the same problem, to be honest my dad got too sick of it. he took it to the garage and they basically said that it would be worth more to my dad if he sold it in parts. sad really, everything else about it was good, but it was just scrap worthy...

I found that if you fill the gaps around the speedo with a mixture of marmite and cream cheese, the buzzing noise goes completely away...

I find polyfiller to be more suitable, or porridge with a really thick consistency... Mmm lumpy.
