  2. My needle is in the wrong position will this work? It just won't go up. It says empty when it's just been filled

  3. can it also be done on the speedometer?

  5. Now it's in the wrong place. should be on the last white line.

  6. fabulous tutorial thankyou, I had a faulty fuel pointer on my peugeot. I put up with it for ages thinking fixing it would be a nightmare (dismantle whole dash etc) but this video shows how it can be done so easily in minutes.
