I went through mine a few years ago. Not much of a write up, but better than nothing.

If you search Airguide you will find a bunch of threads.

I just took them apart, cleaned them up and put them back together. New o-rings came from the local Ace Hardware cardboard parts bin. I repainted the needles too.

I may be thinking of something else - but I use the set nob on the speedo and make it match my iphone gps app. Then I check it at different speeds.
