    My odometer was only showing the top half of the digits so after a quick google search I found this nice and easy fix.

    I did a quick search on here but couldn't find anything and considering it's so easy and works perfect I thought I'd share it.

    When it came to the soldering bit I just held the pencil iron on long enough to feel the point of the solder soften and the iron "step" down. The hardest part is recconecting the plugs in the back of the cluster when you are putting it back together.

    So basically, the problem with the display is just some dry joints that need to be heated up again, thats it. Isn't it possible to completely remove the pcb from the rear casing than to chop out a piece? I have removed the board completely in the spare one I have.
