I am still confused about "the silver box" that "chill14" talks about.
Using your pictures I will be able to remove the unit tomorrow, does this really cost Â£400 from a main dealer.
It does seem I have the same fault as "conkletong" so it looks like this unit does go wrong causing wrong inforamtion on the screen and the back light not switching off when the key is removed.
Could anyone else add anything to this thread please.
The box, is the radio and heater/climate control, control unit. Why they put it together, i've know idea, but that is why, you see people on about putting aftermarket Head units either under steering wheel or in glovebox.
As if you take it out, i believe either your heater/climate control doesn't work, or just switches on to what ever the heater was last set at.
Conkletong, never got back to me about his, so i still have that spare unit. As ck1 has posted it could be the screen its display bit as well, and by the look of that one on ebay, they aren't cheaper either. If you can find someone with a MK3 near you that could let you try theirs, (providing they are the same model/part number), you may be able to find out which it is. Else it could be a main dealer job to make sure.
If you interested in my spare unit at all, let me know.
