    Throw it away and buy a new one.
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

    I guess it is better to spend 60 on a new one than trying to fix the problem?

    Unless I can figure out how to fix it, I have to finally retire my Uwatec pressure gauge - it reads 10bar at empty. I love that gauge too, so much better than the ones on the market now.

    and definitely better than bubbling away underwater thinking you have 90 bar remaining when you haven't and your day is about to become 'interesting'.

    There are some bits of kit that must be reliable and the 'not dead yet' gauge is definitely one of them!

    I might just whack it with a rubber mallet and see what happens!

    That would be my opinion.

    Why keep a piece of kit that you know to have been faulty on your gear? They are not particularly user serviceable.

    Well mine is officially retired. I have a spare, but it's a plastic face, which I don't like, so that's another thing on the shopping list!
