    Dash problem

    I have a 1997 A3 1.8T and the dash is having problems now and then.
    The display screen for "petrol warning light" and the trip computer bits doesnt always show the whole numbers or image. Its like there are whole lines of pixels missing or something!
    Has anyone had this problem before?

    Cheers,

    Jan

    From what I've read this is a fairly common occurance. Mine does it a little, it's worse when it's hot. I don't think there is any fix for it except to replace the whole instrument cluster.

    i did try this following the instructions in the other thread. removed the clocks, and dismntled them easily enough. tried to stick a bit of insulating tape in to put pressure down onto the ribbon, but had absolutely no effect. worth a stab i suppose.
