Good afternoon everyone,
I have a 99 Chevy Silverado Z71 4x4 Sportside. I need some help. I
recently purchased some white faced gauges for my dash. The instructions
that have come with are not of any help. I am wondering how do the gauge
needles come off. I know that they need to be marked prior to removal, just
not sure how they come off. If anyone can be of assistance I would
Normally those covers come with a little plastic tool to remove the gages.
You should be able to use a fork I guess and stick it under the needle and
carefully pull up. As for marking the gauge before moving the Needles,
remember your removing the old gauge cover so marking that won't do you any
good. You need to write it all down on some paper. Also if you start the
job while the truck is hot, and then pop the needles back on when the truck
is cold, the temp gauge will end up being off. Same with the truck power
is on at one point and off the next. I don't know what crappy thing you
bought. The instruction should be more clear and you should of had the
cheap little plastic tool to remove the needles.
No tool but a fork should work. The instructions seem to be for older
vehicles. It talks about removing screws. . . Anyway thanks for the
advise. I will let you know how it went.
