Instrument Gauge Needles

The instrument panel needles on my 87 300D are yellow. I would like to replace them with the orange needles. So far I am unable remove any needles expect the clock.

Does anybody know how to remove them? Is there a special tool for this purpose?

I use florescenent orange paint & a small paint brush to bring the color back. Hobby shops have paint that will work, may have to add some yellow paint to TONE down the color.

I painted mine also. I had replaced the speedo and the needles didn't match + all were faded. Be careful not to move the speedo needle if you do this - mine won't begin to register speed now until I hit 40 or give it a sharp rap.
