Those surface mount resistors can be a right pain.

I'm surprised that people haven't melted them during the process and if they fell off being tiny they would be really hard to find.

Thanks for the warning.

I'm still really angry with Renault that any backlight type unit is not easily changeable at a reasonable cost. Why are we getting so carried away with style over functionality ?

Even being LCD, I believe that the unit could still be backlit by bulbs.

Thanks again.
