Mercedes-Benz CLK430 Instrument Cluster Displays May Lose Pixels

(38 reports)

The instrument cluster display may lose pixels and need replacement. However, if the back lighting bulbs for the odometer display in the center of the cluster burn out, they can be replaced.

There is a kit to repair the pixels. The common issue is a poor contact at the board, the solution is to replace the ribbons going from the display to the contact board. -
