Espnfreak: That basicly what I did, but I used my GPS to tell me my current speed. Once it said I was doing 60 mph I sen the cruise control and gently put the needle back on pointing to 60. Spas: Whew!, LOL. I really dont know how hard they are to put back together, but I didn't realize you were using an extra set and not the originals. This might sound funny, but try using a fork. Gently slide it between the needle base and the guage face, use it like a lever to work the needles off. You don't really need to get the caps off to remove the needle, I just though it would be easier to deal with one item at a time.
