[Biturbos4] Center driver information display readout problem

I had one of those screens die in my 2000 Jetta VR6. To 
replace it, they will replace the entire cluster. So the 
addition of creaks is very limited. 

I would get that fixed, as the chance of it failing 
completely, eventually, is high - if its already starting to 
fail. And that part is probably very expensive if you had to 
do it on your own.

>The driver information readout (displaying radio station and 
temperature) works fine in that is displays what it should, 
but two lines on the LED? panel have gone dark. The 
interesting thing is they actually do work intermittently - 
but about 80% of the time they do not. 
>I am curious if anyone else has encountered this problem. My 
real contemplation is whether I want to bring the car in (it 
is under warranty) and have them replace the readout - it 
seems as though it might be more trouble than it is worth 
(possibly exposing the car to rattles and creaks by 
disturbing the factory secured dash and instrumentation) due 
to the inevitable process of replacing the unit, which is of 
course, buried deep in the dashboard. On the other side of 
that coin is the possibility that the problem worsens after 
warranty expiration.
