I'm looking to change my speedometer console lights to red,
but I know I'll need to recalibrate it afterwards.
Anyone know how to do this, or where to take it to get it done.

also, would the tachometer need to be done to?
or even the thermometer for that matter?

To get the temp and gas gauges correct, let your car heat up, then place the needle pointing straight up. For Gas, buy a full tank of gas, then place the needle on full. As for the tach and speedo, put your car into diagnostics modeand see how far off your needles are then adjust accordingly.

do you actually have to drive the car to set the spedometer?
what do I do once in Diagnostic mode?

and finally, will the car tell me when it's calibrated correctly?

Sounds like they are rubbing. Put it in diag mode and watch them do the sweep. If they stick then your going to have maybe tape it with double backing tape or something on those lines. My gauge over-lay did it to me but i just toke it all back apart and tapped it better!
