    Well i chickened out of buying the part my self and fitting but when i spoke to the ebay guy in germany (who speaks perfect english) he offered a repair service. I removed my Sat nav computer from my car and posted it to him and got it back the same week repaired and working perfectly. Cost me 149 euros plus the cost of posting it to him. i'm living in germany so the 149 covered the cost of him returning it to me too. maybe a little more if your in the uk but i would recommend this guy as a real help. elektronik-idee on ebay.de I can now drive home to the UK without changing CD's!!
