Tanin Auto Electronix became aware of the common LCD screen failure around 2016. After many years of research and enough customers having the same issue it became clear that we needed to come up with a solution. In 2020 we had our first prototype of the new LCD screen. By 2021 we had them produced and stocked.
These gauge clusters can be complicated to take apart and put back together correctly again. If you are not careful you can break the needles, break the LCD screens, break the clips holding the LCD screen ribbons, and do other internal damage to the gauge cluster.
In addition to selling the Mercedes Benz 2003 – 2008 R230 SL Series Instrument Cluster LCD set we also offer the 2003 – 2008 Mercedes Benz R230 SL series gauge cluster screen repair service.
