Default Speedometer won't work

I have a 2008 saturn aura 2.4L that has a speedometer that won't work. It does its check on start up but then won't move when driving. The transmission also shifts hard. I read on this forum this could be the Vehicle Speed Sensor. If so can someone post a picture of where this is located and procedure to replace.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Any codes or errors?
This is for a HHR but I think it's the same transmission...

I would expect codes in the P0500-P0503 range.
Symptoms are listed here...

The symptoms are very similar to the link you posted. Can someone post a picture of where the VSS is located on the vehicle and procedure to replace?

If doing yourself it's pretty cheap to change the sensor to rule it out.
I posted a video on location and procedure.
