Hi,

I am a new member. Had my 993 for 16 years and is a daily driver. Recently my odometer and tripometer stopped recording, as they do get jelly-like over time. 

I have new plastic gears now but am having a really hard time getting the speedometer and the clock out of the dash. It is a simple rubber gasket seal that holds it in place.

Was told to try clock first and then push speedometer from behind. However, all attempts to pry it away have failed mostly because I am fearful to damage the dash “cushion” around it.

Does ANYONE have a solution, tools to use, special technique?

Thanks,

Gino
