LCD SCREEN

Postby PAULHALL » Sat Jan 03, 2015 8:02 pm



I need to replace the LCD screen on my 08 wing. I thought this would be easy but it is more complicated than I thought. to get to the screen you have to remove the plastic shield over the gauges and LCD screen. This requires the removal of the dash (it appears) because the plastic shield is wedged behind it. Has anyone ever attempted this (removal of LCD panel) and is this a job I want to tackle or should I leave it to the dealer (UGH $$$$$) ?? Any advice? I got the main cover popped off exposing the plastic shield and removed the screws holding the shield on but now I am stuck. :?

Here's an exploded view from the Honda parts fiche.

It appears there are also a flange nut holding the cluster assembly which would be accessible from the front.
Impossible to say without being there, but another view may help.

Thanks! Looks like my attempt to remove the lens was not the right path. Need to remove the entire Meter assembly. Scary.I had to laugh at the 2000.00 price tag for the lcd. fount it for 100.00 new.

Paul,

Did you ever get your screen changed? Reason I ask is mine is beginning to fail and I'll likely need to change mine in the near future. Any additional information on where you found and purchased your new screen from and any issues tips you may have for someone else who is going to try this would be greatly appreciated.

OldBrit if you have the extended warranty the dealer should replace it. I had mine replaced at 145,000 miles when small dots appeared.
My dealers justification to Honda was that is were the odometer is.
