Mk2 Trip Screen Shadows

Heres a little guide to get rid of the dark patches on trip computer screens. Looking at either side on the back of the trip you will see 2 torx screws, remove them and dont loose them.


Pulling on the black facia remove the unit out of its casing (dont touch the circuit board as greesy fingers dont do them any good). Looking at the top of the black facia you will see 3 clips, lift them slightly to relese the black facia from the white housing.


Now for all those that dont read everything before they start........... you can now pick up all the 6 buttons off of the floor and put them back in :} . Holding the facia towards the floor and the circuit board upwards whilst removing the black facia will stop the buttons falling out.

Looking at the top of the screen there are 2 white clips to ease up gently and at the same time move the top of the screen forward (be carefull as the screen is glass and its on a ribbon cable at the bottom.... if you damage either of these components your trip is fit for the bin!


This is what you should have now


Remove the white plastic sheet that is behind the screen one side is shiney and one is not so take note which way round it is.

This is the cause of the shadows on the screen.....



Give them a clean with warm water and a cotton bud (one of those things you stick in your ear) for the led housing and a cloth for the bit that goes behind the screen. dont soak it wet just use a damp bud and wipe the led's too.



Putting it back together is reversal of stripping it down ;) .

Things to watch out for! Be carefull with the screen. Be carefull with the ribbon cable on the screen. Dont soak it wet when cleaning it. DO NOT drop it on the floor!
