Need help :(

Hi, I bought a 1998-2002 Honda Accord AT EL Glow White Face Reverse Gauges, The gauges goes over the original ones, and the problem is when I start the car some of the needles would go up and stay there. When I drive sometimes they move but its messed up at the moment. We tried adjusting it and move it as accurate as possible but its still doing that. Can someone give me any tips or maybe ran into the same prob before give me some advice.

Thanks.

that has nothin to do with it


ok this is what you have to do....get a fork w/ thin spokes and put it under the center circular thing of the needle. put your thumb on the top of the needle center and use the fork as a lever to pull the needle up (thumb will be there for safety..so that you don't pull it up too much)

you put new guages so the space between the needle and the guages is minimal and is causing rubbing

be very careful doing this...if you pull it up too much it mite come out and then u'll be fcuked cuz it won't be accurate anymore

because these gauges goes over the old ones. basicly pop needle out place gauge and pop needle back in and it holds it down etc.. http://elgauges.com/index.asp?PageAc...PROD&ProdID=27

I can say im a victim of this, you pretty much have to find some spot that shoots radar, like in a school zone they have MPH readers (around here they do) and i had to drive with my cluster exposed so i could drive by and set the needle, ive managed to get mine within 3-5 mph but its such a pain to get it exact that once i got it close i havent messed with it since
