  6. Before removing the needles turn each needle past the "Low" position. Then carefully remove each needle by pulling it straight up and place them in a safe location. If a needle is particularly hard to remove it can be lifted off by using a fork or similar tool to pry it off.

  10. Unplug the cluster. Place the cluster in your lap and move the needles straight up.
  11. Plug the cluster back into the vehicle. Each needle should rest into its "off" position. If not make needed adjustments or repeat Step 10.

Securing Your Needles:Slide the needle removal tool between the needle and the gauge face. Then press down firmly. This should leave a safe gap between the needle and the gauge face. This is normal and necessary for proper operation.
