So im going to attempt to remove the instrument panel and clean the contacts to hopefully fix the dead pixel issue going on with my instrument panel. Has anyone does this before? How hard is it?... any diagrams or how to posted out there? I searched here and didnt see any. Thanks

Get a copy of Rave if your vehicle is younger than an 06 [if I remember correctly]

nevermind.... I did a google search and downloaded it... 30 mins later the instrument panel was off! Now, just have to find some cleaner tomorrow and hope it works. Thanks for your help.

You do know that just cleaning the present contacts will not help as generally the conductor material printed on the ribbon cable is actually gone at the point of contact? (just making sure) You actually need to remove the insulation a little further back on the ribbon with acetone to expose new contacts.
There was a pretty good picture sequence on one of the BMW boards a while back. I'll see if I can find it.

Take pictures and post!
