  • Group buy: MID & instrument cluster ribbon / ring / bulb

    BMW 3 series (E36), 5 series (E34, E39), 7 series (E38), 8 series (E31), X5 from 1988-2003 all have the common dead / fading / disappearing pixels on the instrument cluster (also on the board computer) - on the large LCD display that shows valuable data such as the mileage and the on board computer messages. The pixel problem lies with the ribbon cable that connects the LCD display to the circuit board of the instrument cluster. You can save some bucks if you replace the ribbon instead of the whole cluster/MID.

    __________________________________________________ ______________________________________

    Update 1:

    We need total 5 bulbs in one instrument cluster. Pls state how many bulbs you need. The price RM45 is for 3 bulbs, can consider RM15 per bulb. I will get the extra bulbs if you want 5 bulbs so u pay extra RM30 to me.

    Update 2:

    Take note all, there are 2 type of speedometer for e39, pls refer to the picture below.

    According to the vendor, the low base speedometer will never fail and they do not have ribbon for this type of speedometer. For e39, the ribbon only fits the high base speedometer.


    Low base speedometer


    High base speedometer

            Bro, if u replace 3 bulbs only, do u think the illumination light will become not balance after that since 2 bulbs are still the old one?

              Bro, the bulbs just for spare/emergency, all my bulbs are OK. If there's no/low demand for these bulbs, I can pass.
              Cluster & MID ribbon is also for standby, only a few pixels in cluster and some pixels in MID are gone so far. I have another total-pixel-loss MID at home (ori with car), maybe can use this GB to fix that one though.
              Cluster ring so far for standby, until cluster ribbon needs to be replaced, then will request installation together.

              Cheers.

                Would love to buy the ribbons but the work to be done is painstaking. Further, I am all thumbs and doubt I can do it DIY. Anyone we can send to for this job?. If there is, then I am cool on the GB for the ribbons.

                      Is there any shop or individual can provide installation services?? I believe many of us are not familiar/well versed on the installation.....

                        If someone can lend us the space and propel tools, may be we can have the group install session. Offcoz we need the help from haywire.
