    How to remove the pointers from the speedo?

    Hi!
    I've disassembled the toyota celica st speedo, and I'm unable to remove the pointer. Need to remove it to replace the dial. Is there a trick for it? Or a screw is holding it?
    I don't want to break it, please help
    Thanks!

    Speedometer needle removal

    This is the trickiest part of the job. The needle is pressed onto a shaft that is extremely thin. It feels like a pretty tough metal, but you HAVE to be careful here. Do not pull straight up. Do not put any torque on the shaft. Rotate the speedometer needle clockwise until it hits a stop point. Gently continue to rotate the needle whil lifting up gently at the same time. The friction is all that is holding the needle to the shaft. Keep turning and prying until the needle comes off. Do not force it.
