A Happy New Year to all of you!!

Did anyone ever replaced a LED that lits up the speedometer dials? Can they be replaced or the whole electronic board needs replacing?

Many thanks!! coffee.gif

So, no one can help with this question... frown.gif

I went to VW dealer and they gave me bulbs, and what do I have is very small LED's fitted. I don't know if they are replaceable or not.

Best regards!

Not sure if your car is the same as a couple of VW's I've had which have one bulb that lights up several dials/points behind the dash through a clear solid plastic 'spider' to distribute the light to where it is needed. It does it by reflecting the light within the plastic reflecting it along.

Not a very technical answer but there does seem to be a certain amount of magic involved! I would add I have no knowledge of post 2002 VW's with led's.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I have brought this issue up before and I din't get to far. So I thought that I should try my luck again. Well...on my passat it looks like a "bulb" or whatever it is, does not lit up to about 60mph on speedo. I even had some pics sent on tyresmoke. Opened up the panel at the back but did not see any bulbs/led's.

If anyone can help, please put me out of missary... laugh.gif
