you prolly put them back on too tight. Try losening them a little. Not a lot, but just a tad. And also make sure the guages are FLAT. Did you just put new guages on top of the old ones? That's what I did and I just made sure that the neddles were out a little bit (like I said not too much) and that I put it on evenly with real thin thin double sided tape.
np it will work. good luck and I actually bought my BOMZ (sp?) guages on e-bay and loved em. They worked out. I didn't do the wiring install cowsgomoo on here did, although he's long gone now with a jetta and I think he mighta got somethin else since then. But yah it'll work
That's what you get with cheap gauge faces. I've installed several of them, only way around is as mentioned, to not push the gauge needles down all the way. You can also try spray gluing (carefully) the gauge face down to the plastic so that it's not 'floating' and causing the needles to rub.
