    haywire....are you sure MMZ is a good location for "clinic/DIY". Since this is delicate job, you need a calm environment with proper table to work on it. If MMZ, hujan susah.

    Anyone can recommend a better place?

    If want to do in MMZ, then make it 2 or 3pm before the restaurant crowded with ppl.

    Or whose house have a big space that can provide us to do?

    I am not a very 'handy' of 'diy' kind of person. Anyone I can pay and get the job done?. Though I do not want to pay RM500 for labour.

    I have only done the instrument cluster, have not done the MID because my car does not have it.

    Can probably try if given the chance.

    Ok tools required for Saturday:

    Drill with size 6 bit

    Long nose plier (in lieu of the 'nippers' in the photo below)

    Small torx set (only need 1 but I'm not sure what size)

    Small flat screwdriver (precision set)

    Big flat screwdriver

    Flat plastic end (a plastic ruler would do, this is to scratch off the residue of the old ribbon on the board)

    I have all these tools already in my car, so those who dont have it can probably borrow mine. But come on, go and buy the precision screwdriver set at least which have the small flat screwdriver and the small torx! hehe
