Question HELP!!!!!!!!~Face gauge overlays~HELP!!!!!!!!!

So my fiance purchased face gauge overlays for our 02 wrx impreza and put them on. They look good and all is fine and dandy there. HOWEVER.... the dials are no longer working. So I guess my problem isn't really the overlays themselves, but instead my gauge needles. He just took it all apart and put the overlays on I don't know what to do to get the needles (which are spring loaded) back in the right places and actually moving. Does anyone have instructions or know where to find instructions on doing this crap? We're getting frustrated.

Re: HELP!!!!!!!!~Face gauge overlays~HELP!!!!!!!!!

I recently replaced the dial faces in my 97 classic with lockwood faces, the resting places for the needles after easing them over the little stop pins were supposed to be marked before removing the needles so that the correct position could be re-aligned upon new guages fitting.

My needles seemed to rest at about the 6.30 position then after easing them back over the pegs they appeared to work fine, however, I've not gone past any speed cameras yet neither have I been followed by the fuzz :P

Sorry I can't be more useful
