A3 1.8T 01 LCD display failure
« on: March 11, 2018, 06:35:09 pm »
Hey has anyone had an issue with the LCD panel on an a3 cluster failing slowly? My golf does it when it's hot but the a3 has permanent lines and what not missing.
Any solutions? Does the whole cluster need to be replaced?

These guys replaced 3 lcd screens in our B5 fleet. In Auckland but itís a straight forward job (search YouTube) to remove the cluster and post it up. Turnaround is very quick as long as they have the screens in stock. Obviously best to email/ring first to confirm stock and pricing.
