Indicator arms

I have an '06, and I am trying to scrape the green from the inside of the dash. I don't know how to remove the indicator arm; speedo, tach, fuel, turbo, etc. Anyone able to point me in the right direction? I had it apart up until that point. Didn't want to force anything and regret it later.
Thanks.

That is what I thought, but didn't want to just keep pulling on them if there were another way. How hard do I pull? Just keep pulling til them come off?

Since I don't play golf, I only have a vague idea of what divot tool is. Any suggestions on similar items?

Just make sure you get the needles back where they were originally. When I did my white face gauges and needles It came with an overlay of the gauges so I could mark where all the gauges sat originally so you gauges will read accurately. Basically turn the truck on, let the gauges do their sweeps and settle. Then make note of where they are all sitting. When you reinstall them do the same and install them where they came from.
