    Hello, just had two goes trying to fix the LCD on my Audi A6. First try made it worse, second maybe made a bit better. The main issue I had was trying put the dials back on correctly, I had to fit them while the dash was connected to the car -it was a real pain. It looks like you can buy new LCD's for £40 on ebay. Fitting them though looks like a tricky job. I'm not sure if it's the solder joint or the connection to the LCD that's is the problem.

    Hello, I used one of the 'How to' fixes on the 'UK Audi' forum site. It advised you can re-attach the cable by heating it up and re-sticking the glue -it's so far not been successful or I've not done it right. To completely replace the lcd looks a bit more tricky still.
    Have you managed a heating fix or a full re-solder and new lcd?
    How much do you heat up the cable and which bit has the bad connections the LCD or soldered end?

    hi lads, the problem often isnt the cable attachment: apparently the cable can develop hairline cracks in it... no amount of glue is going to fix things i'm afraid! its the top bit of the cable which is attached to the lcd itself btw. :)

    Thanks for think bit of info, that does make sense -but looks to be bad news as far as any cheap fix goes :-(. Will look on Ebay for a replacement.
    Have you done a re-solder job with a new LCD panel? I've seen some walkthroughs on the procedure, need the right tools for the job and some expertise, plus I could end up with no display and no dash if it goes wrong :).
