We use a magnet wrapped in a soft cloth [so as not to scratch the dash] to turn the needle completely around again. No special tool needed

Found the problem with the speedometer on my Buick. When you use the magnet to fix the gas gauge, will can and may affect your speedo. So use the magnet trick on it as well. Appears that the manufacturer didn't think about the needles being able to swing past the magnet they have set up in the gauges. Should have put a stop pin on the gauges.

SOURCE: gas gauge stuck under tab
I had the same problem. I carefully removed the dash panel around the dash board (it just snaps out), undid the dash board mounting screws, took out the dash board assembly, disconnected it, removed the plastic lens, and gently turned back the needle. To make sure it didn't happen again I drilled a tiny hole opposite the little post already there (next to the full side) and screwed a tiny screw into it. I then put it all back together and it has worked ever since. While I had it a part I also put a tiny screw on the temperature gauge side so it wouldn't have the same problem. Good luck.
