Temp gauge light (Was "93 90 seat heater switch light")

the display? 


I can tell you from personal experience that you need to replace the entire
temperature gauge to get it to light up again. My 1995 A6 5 speed is under
the Audi Assured warrantee program because I just bought it and my gauge
light was out. So, my gauge was replaced at no charge.  I think the part
sells for like $120.00 but the labor to install it is huge because it
requires a trip into the instrument pod and the removal of the airbag to
get to it!.  I think I would be really ticked off if the car was out of
warrantee.  What were they thinking?  Having to replace the entire gauge
because the light burned out??  I think that this will be the subject of
future posts because, in looking for this car, I test drove several cars
that had this problem.  There's got to be a better way!

Hope this helps
