    Instrument Cluster LCD Repairs

    Hi folks,

    Just thought I would share this as I've seen a LOT of posts about this on various threads here.

    I've had a problem with the LCD on my instrument cluster for a while. I did a search on here and saw the various fixes etc. But I've just located a company very local to me, who offer a really reasonable repair service. They have told me they can do it while I wait, and it should take around 40 mins to 1 hour. Clearly worth a call before you travel to check they can fit you in when you need it done, but seems a really good value service at £99 inc. VAT!

    This is the website of the company.

    Instrument Panel Repair - Digital Dash - Replacement Speedometer - Dashboard Cluster Repairs

    I'm going to get mine done in the next week or so. Will report back.

    Hope this is useful to someone.

    Cheers

    Bob

    had mine fixed by a guy in leicester for £70 droped it to his house 11am on a sunday and collected it 3hrs later as he likes to leave it on test for 3hrs. Been 4 months now and working fine. He gives you the old one back so you know its not been bodged.
