speedo needle adjustement??

I just added a white face gauge cover (the APC plastic sticker kind) to my stock dash gauge cluster. Looks real good. When I removed the needles to replace the black with white plastic, the speedo needle apparently did not get put on back in the exact right spot as before. I place it against the rest/stop, put after a test drive it now rest about at 8mph when parked. So I am now reading about 8mph or so fast during all speeds. It's not too difficult to pull off the dash trim bezal and clear lens to access the cluster and move the needle again, but I was hoping for a faster way to adjust it. Since it's controled by the VSS and ECM will an AE or a similar tool back the needle down for me, or must it be hand adjusted? Thanks for any help.
