White46, did you need to heat the pads to 300C for your successful repair?
No, I didn't use any heat during repair.
My root of cause was ribbon separating from PCB.
Just make sure to clean ribbon contacts on PCB throughly.

I did the cluster and mid repair a time ago. I would recomend to buy a new lcd with the ribbon pre attached. Did that for my instrument cluster, but not for the mid. It makes the job way easier

I've seen the tear down and that is sage advice if you get a good price. It's only $100 for refurbish service zero labor
