I now have to open the tach by un-peening the ring, the needle broke off and i want to repair it.

I cant work out how to remove the black plastic sealing ring holding the gauge glass on the tacho so that I can get to the needle.
Does anyone have a solution or does it have to go to an expert?
Is there someone in Australia who can repair the gauges?
My speedo is slow in responding too.

Thanks too to Jeff Bennets for the link - explains it all in great detail and with photos - now to try my luck uncrImping!!!
Any idea where I can source the additional chrome vanity ring to cover my uncramping mistakes?
