    Default How do I reset needles after stripping speedo?

    As title, the revs sit just above zero while idling now. Is there a method for resetting them to zero?
    Cheers

    Trial and error mate. That's all i did. It was the fuel gauge that worried me. I filled it up and did the fuel. Ran it to temp and put that needle on, idled at 750, took for a spin on the motorway using satnav.

    Had this after doing led conversion. When you take the needles off, twist them anti-clockwise while pulling up at the same time. When you put needle back on, line it up and ONLY press down, slight anti-clockwise is ok but not clockwise. Also make sure the bottom of the needle isn't making contact or catching the speedo fascia.
    Hope this helps bud? Good luck

    Cheers for the replys, all sorted now
    I did the speed, temp and fuel anti clockwise but got fussy with the revs needle and moved it clockwise too. I'll have to double check the speed with sat nav, it was generaly -3mph before.
    Happy with the blue, vast improvement.
