    you mean LCD? They are quite easy to fix. You can get the new ribbons from ebay for around £20. Takes about an hour total. I did mine a good few years ago

    Used an AK Speedo kit from Ebay to repair clock and temp displays on a W208, quite easy to do with their instructions and still good 3+ years later.

    Always been a bit ham fisted, very dangerous with a screw driver, how does the speedo cluster come out, does the streeing wheel have to be removed, who supplies these ribbons, do they require soldering, only kits I saw on E Bay were for different models.
    Apologies for all the questions
