Help with instrument cluster, broken display screen
 
1 Attachment(s)
I had the bright idea to take apart my cluster in my 2000 328i and try to fix my broken clock. In the process i did something to break my display screen. All the words and numbers show up broken.

looks like this

Im wondering if it is some type of anti-tamper reaction from the computer. I'm trying to fix it myself before i give up and take it to the dealer.


Any advice at all will be a great help.

You broke the pixels :/ you'll need a new cluster and get it reprogrammed

Do you know how much that will cost at the dealer? and can i buy a used one and use that?

Before you do that, take it apart again, remove the screen and put it back in the other way up.

Believed it or not but that lcd is removable. I have a bunch of spare instrument cluster parts to include that lcd screen
