I've found twisting the needles back towards the stop gets them off easy.
There is a physical stop in the gauge motor so it won't hurt them.
I've done it this way a fair few times to mine and the wife's and it hasn't had any detrimental effects to the accuracy or function.

The most important thing is to take note of where the needles were before you take them off.
I take a photo as a reference.

I can make an EF police face easy enough, but it will only be on matte photo paper, not plastic like the guys on ebay that used to sell them.
