Are you talking about putting a dab of glue on the shaft behind the last gear so that they don't slide anymore?900t said:yeah pretty much. There are gears in there, and the gears for some reason start slipping on their shaft or go out of alignment. Put some glue or whatever and then fixed.
work in really close to the spindle while trying to pop it off so you're not levering it to excess. If they're like VW needles (they're VDO's, right?) the hole in the needle is almost like a circlip - so it resists coming off - if you support it underneath on three sides and yank straight up the needle will come off - it'll also probably fly off to parts unknown unless you put some tape on it to connect it to whatever tool you've fabricated to yank it. I have used a fuse remover (for the blade fuses) on VW's - and it worked (didn't scratch a thing) - it's worth a shot.ryan_in_nashville said:a.) I'll break the needle
pad where your tools come in contact - be prepared with a black sharpie to cover any "oopsies"ryan_in_nashville said:b.) I'll scratch the fascia?
