How Remove GLOW GAUGES?

I glue mine with elmer's glue( the kind that kids use at school). Is it possible to take the glow gauge out without tearing the number on the oem gauge.

Please help ME

Elmer's will dissolve in water...... don't know if that'll help in any way though.

you probably won't tear it, but you'll leave some residue.

if you start going over it with nail polish remover, you'll take off the numbers. so don't do that. take it from me. i no longer have D1 or D2... :X

Well first use a hair dryer at close range for about 1.5 minutes. And the glue will begin to loosen, once you remove the gauge you can whipe up most of the glue with a lint free towel, use some goo gone, or nail polish remover to clean it up.

to remove just pull up on the guages and as for removing the glue use some water first and later come back with wd40 to remove any sticky residues.
