Re: typ44T: Soldering joints on back of speedo printed circuitboard

I'd hit everything. I'm going to be doing this sometime soon. I need to replace
a bulb anyway, plus the intermittent shaky speedo. You can't always see a bad
connection, and if you could, another one might go later. So, re-flow all of
the connections. You should avoid heat buildup in any given area, so do a few
in one part, then move to a totally different area. Jump around like this until
the the whole thing is done. BTW, I did this with the A/C programmer a few
years ago and was very happy that my vents started behaving again!
