Question SPEEDO CLUSTER LCD DAMAGED,,,CAN I JUST REPLACE THE LCD?

I have a 1998 cl600, the lcd display in the cluster is damaged. can i replace JUST the lcd? If so does anyone know where to get one? Or what other car uses a similar cluster with the same lcd i can buy and swap mine with. Any help would be useful. By the way my lcd is cracked thats why i need a new one.

Comments..

If you buy a cluster, the cluster will show the miles from the donor car.

In general the cluster replacement is fairly straightforward DIY, or very EZ for a indie MB shop. There are a couple of "cluster hooks" out there that make the pop-out easier. Best to do when the interior is warmed up - meaning not to do this on a cold-cold day.

There is a repair service, do a google, I believe out of the Carlolina's that has a good reputation for quality work. Repairing the original cluster means you will be down for a few days, but when you get your cluster back you will be showing the correct original mileage.

Reseeting the mileage on a cluster is a matter of both having the correct diagnostic/programming, which is beyond most common Star units. Finding soemone who can reset a MB odometer is like pulling hen's teeth.

Good luck !

Exclamation

I know that programing is hard to find, but if i can find a 95 or 96 cluster, the 98 cluster uses the same lcd as the earlier models just cosmeticly covered different. It doesnt matter if some of the gauges dont work or anything, by just changing the lcd only retains my programming but fixing my lcd,my friends car is a 96, we have opened his and verified that they are the same lcd, so if anyone can help that would be just great.. thanks again for your guys help
