K2 blue needle not in sync

I bought an used K2 and noticed that the blue needle is not actually displaying the shutter speed I selected.
It is two speeds ahead. So when I select 250 it displays 1000 and when I select Auto it is stuck to the very top of the display.
I suppose this is not a major problem, however, I'm just curious if there is a way to solve this problem easily.

So here is my question, can I somehow adjust the blue needle, so it displays the shutter speed selected on the shutter-wheel?

Kind Regards,

The meter assembly can be adjusted, but require your comfort in opening the upper shell.

Grab a copy of the repair manual...

Page 5/13

So have a look first before diving in.
