So putting in my reverse glow gauges. The rpm needle was pulled off and now when I'm idling it's super high and it's throwing me off because I don't know when I redline haha. How can I fix this? All the other needles work perfect though. Thanks!

It's highly recommended to take a picture of the needles before you start. Did you do that? I heard that once the needle comes out you can try resetting it by disconnecting the battery for 10 Minutes or take it to a dealer to have the needles reset.

no I didn't because I've done it before without taking the needles off but one just happened to come off on accident and I know where it goes but it gets stuck everytime I try to put it back in place.

what i'd do is pull the cluster cover off...pull off the rpm needle...start the car and let it run for 5 min...then stick the need back on at 700 rpm spot...it wont be 100% but it'll be as close as accurate as i can think of without a pic prior or dealer help

for 99-04 you can push and hold the trip button (while car is not on) and once the gauges flip over you can start the car, push the trip button until you see the RPM gauge displayed where the odometer is then you can match it with the needle. Dont push the needle down to far (match it to the others) else it will stick, not far enough it wont turn either.
