That happened to mine.  I had it replaced under wrranty.  No related
problems have come up since (its been about 7k miles since it was replaced).

I've heard that the cluster costs $800+ so I wouldn't want to have to
replace it on my dime.

Subject: [Biturbos4] Center driver information display readout problem

I own a 2001 S4 with 35,000 miles (second owner).

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.

Any thoughts??
