Gas gauge stuck at 1/4

I installed a chrome bezel on my gauges yesterday and I notice some dust on the faces, I took a cloth and wiped them and my finger touched the gas gauge, not by much. I put everything back together again and now it's stuck in on position. Any ideas? Thanks

Take the clear lens off while the ignition is turned to on and bump it with your finger and see what happens. Very likely you pushed the needle down a little and it is getting caught on the gauge face itself.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
