How do you remove Speedo Needle?
I'm trying to disassemble the speedo on my '86 300E and can't figure out how to remove the speedo needle so I can remove the instrument face. I ultimately need to replace the arm that resets the trip odometer because the end of it broke off. In order to get at the pivot pin that holds the arm I have to remove the face.
Is there a special tool or technique for removing the needle? I tried gently pulling it straight off, but it wouldn't budge, and I didn't want to use any more force. I'll take it to a VDO repair shop as a last resort, but I really don't want to spend $100-$125 (their typical speedo repair price) for a $10 item.
Anyone done this and know the trick?
