I just colored my dials red with a sharpie and after much fustration of putting it back together the center where the mileage is is ****ed up.

After playing with it a lot I got it to work but I have to hold my hand underneath it and press tightly for it to display properly.

How do I fix this I took it apart many times and it still does not work.
I dont know what I'm going to do now since i'm also scheduled for a visit to the dealer soon.

Please help.

Only if you still have those "white" needles. Don't forget, he colored them.

Just use nailpolish remover and it will take the red on the needles right off :). I conned my dealer into replacing my gauge cluster a while back, when I screwed up a gauge panel installation.

IN ORDER TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM I MADE SURE THE PINS ON THE BOARD ARE GOING INTO THE SLOTES. Look at the picture that i supplied.

I will be writing a DIY soon on how to do it..
