Is it a big issue do you think?
That depends on what is wrong.
An unplugged connector? Easy. Just reconnect it.
Bad speedometer? Also rather easy. Just replace it.
Broken wire. Not so easy. You have to FIND the break.
VSS gear with broken teeth? Not very difficult. Just replace the gear. (Be careful removing/installing the VSS as the gear has been known to fall off and end up inside the tranny.)
Gear fallen off the VSS and now somewhere inside the tranny? Rather difficult. Replacing the gear isn't hard. But I don't want that VSS gear inside the tranny. That's the hard part. Having to split the case and get that gear out.
The VSS gear itself in a plastic gear. So having a couple of teeth inside the tranny shouldn't be of much concern. However having the whole gear inside could be. That is why I would split the case to get it out. My choice on that. It may not cause trouble but I'd rather be sure.
