Interesting, Ill have to just try to pull them off and see what happens. I thank you for that.

So apparently there are now 4 of us that want to get these things fixed, I thought I saw a guy in Washington off ebay that will fix them.

Spend a few hours of research and learn to do it yourself. If lextech can do it so can you.

Save time money and peace of mind

Looks like a hustle to do but I'd be interested in someone else fixing mine if anybody has any info.

I had seen that, I wasnt sure if the needles were done the same way. Im going to run this by one of the guys at my work tomorrow, they build medical lasers so Im sure this would be a cake walk.

Im trying to get mine fixed. I already figured out how to do most of the stuff on my car by myself so as soon as I get the needles done I will let you guys know.
So far I can do the climate control LCD, the lights behind it and the buttons / cluster, just gotta figure out a good solution for the needles.

I was probably a little harsh with my words. I didn't mean for it to come across as though it didn't recognize or appreciate your extra efforts for my situation because I did. I actually do really like the cluster and climate control. My mechanic thought it was really cool and had me show him where I got it done at. I'm sure my failed needles can be fixed without much effort. Just a matter of making time for these things. Thanks for the response.
