There's two types of speedo used in the HQ.

VDO speedo (metal back)

Flexdrive speedo (plastic back)

Flexdrive is no worries, remove the screws on the back edges, then twist and remove the pointer, fit your decal and refit the pointer, twisting it counter clockwise until it points to zero.

VDO is different. Remove the screws holding the back on around the edges, and remove the plastic cover on the back which covers the speedo movement. You need to hold the internal speedo shaft with long nose pliers while twisting the pointer off. Be careful not to snap the pointer on the pointer stop as you twist it and be careful not to damage the speedo internals when grabbing the internal shaft.

IMPORTANT NOTE: With the VDO speedo, you will need to have the speedo re-calibrated after re-fitting the pointer.

My advice is if it's a VDO, get an instrument tech to fit the dial decal.

The Flexdrive you can do yourself, no re-calibration required.

You can PM me if you have problems.
