If we receive your cluster from you by early afternoon, we usually return your repaired cluster in the evening shipment. Expedited or overnight return shipping is available for a small fee. We use only the highest quality European displays. We use high quality LCD displays manufactured in Europe by the Original Equipment Manufacturer, VDO. Our competitors use cheap displays made in China. The Chinese displays that our competitors use have: Inconsistent color, sometimes lighter and more orange than the original equipment red color Poor contrast with the background appearing gray instead of black No record of how long the Chinese displays will last, it is possible that the Chinese displays could fade in a few years Please email, phone or use the form at the bottom of this page to let us know about your customer experience. Half Size LCD Display Will the display fit your car? Notice the display area in the image on the left. The top half of the display has warning lights that come on when you start the car. The bottom half of the display is the red pixel LCD display. Does your red pixel LCD display cover only the lower half of the display area? (In some cars the red pixel display covers the full height of the display area). LCD replacement service covers only cars that have the Half Size display. The following models are covered: (for instrument clusters made by VDO only!) VW Golf MK IV (A4/Typ 1J) (model years 1997-2004) all models with half size LCD/MFA VW Jetta/Bora MK IV (A4/Typ 1J) (model years 1999-2004.5) all models with half size LCD/MFA VW Passat B5 and B5.5 (Type 3B/3BG) (model years 1996-2005) VW Passat B5.5 facelift (model year 2001) VW Eurovan T4 (model years 1990-2003) VW Polo (with half size LCD/MFA) If your car is not listed above or if you're not sure, call your local VW dealer, tell them your VIN and ask for the part number of a replacement instrument cluster for your vehicle. Email the part number and I will tell you if the LCD can be replaced. Replacement only for models assembled with VDO instrument cluster, will NOT fit Jaeger instrument cluster. We are able to offer you a great price for two reasons: The price is discounted temporarily until our upcoming busy season. We have developed a super-efficient process to remove the old LCD display and attach the new display. My friends and family and I have owned many Volkswagens and many of those cars had defective LCD display screens which gradually faded until the display information was barely visible. In my first attempts to fix the problem; I bought cheap displays from China and tried to solder the new replacement display onto the instrument cluster circuit board. The ribbon cable that needs to be soldered is made of plastic and it is extremely difficult to apply enough heat to melt the solder without melting the plastic ribbon cable. I tried standard and hot air soldering tools and neither worked. If you try to replace the display yourself, there are three challenges: Removing the old ribbon cable (without detaching the connection pads on the circuit board). Attaching the new ribbon cable (without melting the ribbon cable and destroying the new display). Making sure that no solder gets into the tiny gaps between the connection pads (shorting out the connections). When removing the old display, the tiny pads on the circuit board are very delicate and they easily peel away and detach from the circuit board with the slightest bit of excess heat. If the heat doesn't cause any damage, another major problem is that there are 26 tiny silver connection pads and it's almost impossible to get solder only on the silver connections without getting any solder in the gaps between connections which shorts out the connections. After almost ruining a few circuit boards removing the old displays and destroying a few new displays during installation, the process turned out to be too difficult and expensive so I began to search for a new process. After much trial and error, I developed a replacement process that is safe and reliable and has no chance of causing any harm to the new display or the delicate contacts on the instrument cluster circuit board. VW instrument clusters have testing software built-in with which it is possible to run a set of diagnostic tests on the gauges and LCD display pixels. I have put together an electronics testing workbench that allows me to power up your instrument cluster and test the gauges, needles and the pixels in the new display. The testing software is expensive and the wiring needed to power up the display connect it to the computer is very complicated. Our advanced innovative process for removing the faulty LCD display and attaching the new display is fast and safe, guaranteed to cause no damage to your instrument cluster circuit board. We do not use high temperatures in the process which eliminates the risk of heat damage to the delicate plastic LCD display ribbon connection cable and the circuit board it attaches to. Our competitors remove your old display and attach a new display using a high-heat process that can damage the new display and damage the circuit board in your instrument cluster.

I manage every aspect of the LCD display replacement process and I personally guarantee the quality of the parts and the replacement service for every display. My friends and family and I have owned many Volkswagens and many of those cars had defective LCD display screens which gradually faded until the display information was barely visible. LCD Auto Tech began because I wanted to fix the faulty displays and I found the process very difficult so developed an easier to replace the LCD displays which has less risk of damaging the new display or the circuit board.
