Hello and Welcome..
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise you -
Yes you can do as you mention - you will have to remove the cluster unit as a whole and then strip it..
You can feasably get at it once the shroud is removed - and then remove ( you will see the screws ) the plex glass from the front - but often its found to be easier to remove it completely to deal with it...
The needle should not come loose - it is rare - but you may find it will fix by simply applying pressure to the centre of the spindle with long nose pliers - and then see how it is... but thats the way as above to do this...
If there is anything more by all means get back to me and we can carry on... >> Meantime >>>> Please do click on the "OK/ Excellent ratings" for me - Thank you in advance for that...You can and are most welcome to get back to me anytime you might need - clicking the OK ratings does not close you out at all..Kind Rgds, MIKE.
i got the needle out quite easily but the problem is still that it does not turn when i rev so i need help on what to do to get the needle to work again...i need some information on how to open the holder for the needle on the circuit card...there is a round white box for each needle that holds the mechanism for the needle and i need info on how to take this off so o can se if something is broken inside this holder???
