    Dashboard LCD Replacement

    I’ve seen a few faded/dead Golf 5 LCDs in dashboards… mine seems to be intermittently bad… as a Christmas Eve project I thought I’d research how easy it would be to replace the LCD display and came across this German tutorial… turn on English captions if your German is as bad as mine…

    Its a pretty common failure on the Mk5 generation Golf's/Jetta's and similar era Passat's etc.

    Should be a nice DIY.

    Thank you, super handy. Dashboard LCD Replacement

    About to look into the LCD replacement on my Jetta. If I don't feel comfortable doing the replacement, do I need a VW specialist or will an Auto-electrician be able to do the swap?

    Thanks Dashboard LCD Replacement

    Thank you @Lucas_R Dashboard LCD Replacement You have been a happy customer in the past?

    They're in Townsville, I'm in Cairns, about 4h drive. They appear to be worthy of the trip though and/or may travel up themselves. There are quite a few VDubs in the Townsville area and I am expecting to do the trip after a 200k service. Works in well, cheers. Dashboard LCD Replacement
