W129 Aircon panel


I have a '99 SL320 and am busy fixing up a couple of electrical issues. The LCD display of my airconditioning unit seems faulty (typical LCD display faults). It does not diaplay all the characters (unless you apply some pressure to the frame or touch the screen). Has anyone had a similar problem? Is it worth replacing the unit or can the LCD display be fixed?

Don't have any experience fixing this display (although the unit looks very similar to the one on a W210) but I assume the issue is the elastomer membrane, the connector from the display glass to the PCB board. You probably could change it to a new one if you can open the unit and find a new membrane that fits.
