Default AU xr 3 insrument cluster repairs

Hi Guys,

can anyone recommend a reputable cluster repair company, that can replace internal illumination on my cluster.?
I replaced all of the bulbs, but on the Crystal Display Unit, the side for the mileage (right side ), is not lighting up.
The left side does, so you can see what gear your in, doors etc

I think it must be soldered in, but I don't want to pull it apart and muck around with it, as it has genuine Tickford silver facia.

Its a pity that corner is blacked out, you don't get the full effect of the T series blue backlighting, while driving at night.

The cluster was already like that when I bought it, but apart from that, everything functions as it should.
Just a lighting problem, that doesn't seem globe related.

Any advise would be great

Same issue on my AU2 xr8 just the last week. There is a good instrument technician in Doonside in Sydney called MIS Metro Instrument Service and hoping to get there to talk to them next week and will report back.
Cheers.

You could try Injectronics as they repair local clusters and MDC's.

Mobile Instrument Service

3/11 Bowmanís Road, Kings Park if you are in Sydney. I used them for my ED, very good and reasonable priced. Family owned business.

Cheers
