    From joy to destroyed .....

    So, having solved the problem of obtaining a plug for the MFD conversion in my SRi I get the plug temporarily wired up using the interior light and door switch for lives and earths on on the comes the MFD ..... nice. But a few lines of pixels missing. So a quick google finds a post on how to repair a Vectra display and I take apart my Astra display and started to give it a clean up.
    Not knowing whether it was going to be a success I attempt to put the LCD panel back in it's clips and CRACK! it split right across - absolutely gutted.

    So my display has gone the way of that cat - now sitting in the bin wondering what hit it

    If anyone wants to know about how to do the plug on the cheap let either myself or DCDave know.

    Guess you don't know if you fixed the issue of missing pixels either?

    Bummer though as the trip comps are still quite expensive to buy unless you get lucky.

    So unlucky after the time and effort involved in locating a plug. I'll be keeping an eye on the classifieds (both here and other forums) and I'll be sure to let you know if anything comes up!

    Unlucky bud, I've seen that vectra how too. And wondered why people haven't trait this already, as there isn't any reason (apart from cracking it) as to why I shouldn't work!
