I'll try to post a photo example of the necessary internal worm lubrication also.

For the 37 and many other years, the decorative outer bezel can be removed by gently unbending the bezel edge (see previously posted photo of area just below the red circled mounting tab). The bezel sandwiches and centers the glass and outer metal mask (behind numbers) in the case of most AC, Stewart Warner, Auto Lite and King Seeley units of the 30's and 40's.

For some units, the next step is to remove the two frame to enclosure screws on the backside of the unit. This will allow you to remove the mechanism without having to disturb the pointer or the small faceplate. This will allow access to the removable worm gears and delicate odometer(s).
