pixel repair

1 Answer

485

You mean for the SID unit? It's caused by a faulty connecting ribbon from the unit to the LCD. After checking out some I tried taking it out of the dash, and putting foam between the screen and the connecting ribbion to apply pressure, took about 30min and achieved about 95% restoration. I'm looking at getting a rebuilt unit now... Link for 30 min repair http://www.thesaabsite.com/93/Saab-Sidrepairs.htm Link for rebuilt unit (can't vouch for company haven't ordered yet) http://www.bba-reman.com/
