AC Autotechnic S7 Gauges
Has anyone had problems with the
needles getting stuck to the additional
peice on the gauge, my needles keep on
getting stuck to the face, should i
sand the bottom of the needle down?
Any other suggestions?

HOLA! I had that exact same problem in the beginning. to ghetto solve this, i rolled up small peices of paper and put them between the black palstic near the locaitons were the needles were getting stuck (mine was at liek 1500, 3000, and 7000) and it pushed them down so it was good smile But in the end what the best thing you can do it, pop off the needles, and put them back on but dont push them down all the way. after doing this i never have had a problme again. and if you are carful poping off the neelds and puting them right back on, no recalibration will be needed. i have had to recalibrate mine a coupel of times. if you have any quesiotns feel free to PM me thumbsup thumbsup

PS. S7 Gauges Kick Ass!!!! Heres mine for anyone reading this who dindt knwo waht they are. that and i like showing them off thumbsup thumbsup

if you get the S7 gauges they change to blue. what mph/kph and rpm are you talking aobut? The S7 gaues makes the spedo and rpm blue. the things that will still be orange is the needles and the Gas LCD. to change those ot blue you will need to get leds to unsodder the orange leds to blue. www.rjautoworks.com and email him for the led kit. also says how to do it. if you have mroe questions, feel free to PM me thumbsup

I got mine from Autodynamic.com they rock, and were pretty straight forward to install...If you are unsure about them getting stuck then put the raised grey part under a couple of books before you put them on, and after you actually put them on the face (don't crush the needles of course)
