Does anyone know how I get the needles from the speedometer etc. off without breaking them?

I tried with a fork, but all I managed to get of was the black housing on top of the needle :S

Are they attached with the tiny screws on the backside of the PCB or something?

Thanks :)

lay down a peice of paper directly under it to protect the speedo display from getting scratched. Get a small flat head screwdriver under and pry it up slowly. They pop off.

Hm..I tried that, but maybe I didn't do it hard enough.

I'll give it another shot, thanks!

Yeh they just pop off, you just gotta give it a little more umph and they come off w.o breaking. Goodluck.
