I did this very repair a couple of weeks ago, one connector actually came
off the board when I took the speedo out.
I also suggest you clean the 4 pins that slide into the connectors, mine
were very dirty right around the point of contact.

Hey guys:
It certainly would appear that the dealer service advisor (in the original
thread) hasn't errored necessarily, and maybe just had a few points made by
looking at the TSB Neil put forth.  This is a known problem, I've done a
couple of these fixes already.  Here is the full monty of the TSB, short of
the pix pointing to the 2 connectors usually at fault.
