Default Cluster Question

How do I remove the needles from the gauge cluster? Do they just slide off? It's a 00 ex cluster if that helps.

I haven't done it, but I did some reading a while back. You pop the cover off the base of the needle (some clusters don't have a cover), and you slide the needle off, you can use a fine set of needlenose pliers or something to give even pressure while your prying it off. Make sure you know where to put the needle back on, or the calibration will be out to lunch.

Yup and be very careful...
I tried to do this with my needles...Had to be really aggresive with the rev counter needle to get that out, then just touched the temp gauge and it pinged off leaving most of the pin stuck in the cluster.

I think I'll just leave them alone then.... That sounds like it could go bad very easily. Thanks Guys
