Well I decided to replace the faulty LCD screen in my oem cluster after ordering my RS4 cluster since it was just laying around. I have an entire electronics lab at my work with chipquik, low temp solder, super bright magnifying glasses and so on... I apologize I wasn't able to take pics step by step due to the security at my work but here are some before and after repair pics.
PM me for details.
The screen is the Genuine (blue ribbon) OEM matching replacement as I feel our cars are worth more than the china made screens, even thought they are a great repair on a budget I figured why not have it done right the first time.
