Dave was referring to the outside temp display on his S6, not a C5 A6.
Separate display and no VAG-COM needed.  Still very easy to replace.
R&R is a 20min job, plus the time to fix the display itself.  Five
screws to remove the instrument cluster.  Another 4 to remove the
display (2 for the display, 2 small ones for the connector).
