Speedo dial sticking... sometimes rev counter too!

Hi guys n gals!

Saffy's speedo keeps sticking. It moves when I give the clear plastic cover a tap, but then it stays where it is again. When it's been running for miles, the rev counter seems to follow suit.

I think it might be heat related but even when I turn down the heater to pass cool air behind it, it doesn't seem to come alive again.

Bought a scrap dial set but it only 1/2 lit up and the speedo didn't work AT ALL! Oh, and it put my mileage uptp 124,000! Needless to say the old one went back in with a slightly working speedo..

Any ideas please?
