I did this replace on A6/C4 - took the whole cluster out, disassembled the cluster and replaced this part (actually upgraded the one with pictures to pictures and trip computer)

The replacement was from a used dashboard. 3 hrs job - 1 hr was to take the cluster out. 1 hr for the cluster itself and 1 hr beer.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum... but I am hoping to get some help.

I recently replaced my center LCD screen on my '99 A6 2.8. That worked like a charm, but I have two small glitches:

1. After a couple of trial and error rounds, I have my speedometer properly tracking speed again. The issue is that when accelerating from 0-35mph, it moves "ratchety", then smoothes out to normal operation after that. Any thoughts on how to fix it?

2. I have 176k miles on my car, but since replacing the center LCD, the small LCD located under the speedometer (has miles and trip counter) only displays 76k miles. The "1" intermittently appears, generally as things warm up. I was able to get a solid display if I pushed on the center red connector (20 pin). I am going to take a look at the pin-to-pcb solder joints this weekend to see if that is the problem. Does anyone have a wiring diagram/pinout schematic for that center 20-pin connector?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
