    I have a problem with my 2000 (W Reg) BMW 318i - Dashboard mileage/clock display. I can only read the top half of the digits. So it is difficult for me to check the time and to see the mileage reading.

    I have attached the pictures.

    Local BMW specialist advised me that it will cost around £300 found to fix. But the good news is on of the AA petrol technician told me that it is common and I can buy it from e-bay. As I forgot to ask the parts name, anyone got any idea please - "what I need to do to fix this"

    Thank you in advance for your precious time.

    Kind Regards

    not a definite fix but i had this problem on my old 330d, i just took the clocks to bits, gently eased the clips off the display, took its out, there is 2 foamy kinda things going from the display down to the actual main clock, a couple of blows and a little wipe along the bottom of these and all was well!

    at the back there are some t10 screws it think, that just slips off then you can pull the circuit board out.

    There is a guy in Southampton who will fix it for £80 while you wait.

    Look on Ebay he has a listing there.

    Hi mikesmith

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    Do you know his name/phone number/ ebay user id etc or the parts name so I can search on ebay.
