    Default been playing with my Speedo

    Been playing with my Speedo and I sanded off the red on the needles so they where clear can be tricky at the silver points with just marking one needle but not too fused I've then put blue leds behind the needle for a neon effect. I will next prob change it all to white with blue needles. Still need to change the LCD screen aswel

    Looking good.

    Regarding putting the needles back on, is it just guesswork to get them back on at the right position?

    Fair enough. Just thought I'd read somewhere on here about having to be very careful about not turning them anti-clockwise or something. Probably thinking of something else though.

    Is there a How 2 on here somewhere for removing and dismantling the speedo?

    EDIT:

    Found it

    There is but it is really simple lol al give u a run down

    Pull off the dash strips
    Put your steering wheel down and towards you
    Now pull the plastic bit front of the clocks
    Remove the two torx screws
    Pull down the clocks from the top so they come flat on the face
    Unplug the connector
    Bring the dials out off the car
    On the rear there is a few little screws
    Take off the back panel
    Now unclip the clips and pull the front off (plastic front)
    Needles u just turn antilock and pull at the same time
    3 clips on rear to unclip and there u have it
    It looks hard but its really easy
