Question Tachometer pointer is below the travel stop how do I get it above the travel stop, TJ

I did the dash light and gage check and now the tachometer pointer is below the travel stop how do I get it above the travel stop without tearing the dash apart; 2005 TJ?

Sounds like you need to take your dash apart. Plenty of threads on it, not difficult to do at all!

You have to drive in reverse REALLY fast untill it flips back around!

You need to take the dash apart and take the plastic protector off and just spin the needle around with your hand, the same thing happened to my XJ and the XJ dash is almost identical to the TJ. not that hard

Here ya go : DailyDrivenTJ-Taking Dash Apart

Thanks for the feedback and the excellent link guys. I think I may be able to "Get Er Done", I will have to buy a Torx set and wait for the rain to stop. Couldn't go fast enough in reverse ...

You shouldn't need a torx set at all unless Jeep changed things, you should be able to do the entire job with nothing more than a phillips head screwdriver. That's all I need to get into or even totally remove my '97 TJ's instrument cluster.
