    Started the car up last night and noticed a row of cells on the central display between the speedo and rev counter have died :(

    Ive had a quick search but can't find anything about a DIY fix. Is there anything you can do?

    Its the red text type display from a 2006 model not the newer colour display.

    Cheers, Chris

    This was a regular fault with B5 models, and the only solution with those was to replace the whole instrument panel.

    I've no idea if that would still apply with B6/7 models though.

    Is that just the screen itself or the clocks too?
