re Odometer Repair Questions

I managed to retrieve my odometer/speedometer from the 
instrument panel and was wondering how I can go about 
fixing the odometer which was dead when I bought the car.
The price quote I got for the odometer fix was $140. By all
means if possible I would want to try and do it myself and 
save me the extra $$$. I managed to get everything opened
but I can't get the speedo needle out of the way to work 
on the inside assembly. Does anyone know how to remove
the needle and two does anyone know how to get the odometer
fixed. I  was planning to check if there was a slipping or 
broken gear inside. Thanks BTW the car is an 88 80Q
Where did you get that price?  There is a repair facility in VA, USA for VDO
(address is not at hand).  I haven't had a repair priced there yet.  Used
instrument panels can be had for about $70.
