    Need to be careful with ebay used items

    Clusters have different PR and Build Codes etc. They can be very vehicle specific on equipment, build year, connection style etc. Plus if you find one yous still have to get it reprogrammed which wont always work, its a safety feature to try and stop clocking

    Belive you can only re-code the milage on a brand new unit and thats only the first time?

    Id say try adn get your one repaired, wouldnt go for a second hand unit.

    Or get audi/vw/skoda dealer to sort it.
