Hey all,

 

I bought a 2.0 turbo petrol Vel Satis 2003 last year, it was in fairly poor condition outside, I had been storing it inside my barn and have restored the outside of the car to its former glory,

Inside the car is immaculate, except for some mold that formed from me having not started and heated up the interior, 

I have now cleaned the car completely of all mold and I just have to buy a new battery today, along with new filters and oil to get her started.

 

The only issue I have with the car, is the display, which displays the external temperature and radio information, its all distorted and fuzzy, making it unreadable.

How would I go about actually replacing the screen as its behind the dash?

 

Absolutely lovely car, comfortable and in my opinion, a very handsome looking vehicle.

 

I am looking forward to getting it sorted out so I can drive her. I will need four new tyres, NCT, Tax and insurance first, but I will wait until I get her 100% the way I want her before doing that.

 

I plan on taking her to the UK this summer for some camping and fishing, it'd be nice to travel in comfort and style compared to my B2500.

Hi A. No idea how to replace the screen, but thought I would say hello and how good it is to read your enthusiasm to get the car back in top nick. They are worth the effort. One word of advice from experience. make sure you get a decent battery of the right size; because the electronics seem to be sensitive to battery voltage; if the battery is just bit down on voltage, strange things happen. Good luck and look forward to hearing more. Andrew

I also have the 2.0T , taxed off the road at present, no NCT. 

 

I'm in Contae an Chlár, only up the road. Drop me a line here and I'm help as much as I can.

Andrews advice about the battery is spot on.

If I can only give one piece of advice, get the best quality oil you can afford, then buy better and change it often, about every 4000 miles. (2 blown turbos make me qualified in this matter Frown )

 

Regards

Hi,

if you're talking about radio screen (no navigation option) it is actually very easy to get it out and repair (search for part 8200166236 or 8200166237 depending on radio type). Mine was missing bottom half text, and also top part was distorted.

You only need to unclip top and bottom instrumental panel bezel and unscrew 2 torxs. Then unclip the display and 3 cables.  From that on I followed the http://www.instructables.com/id/Repair-a-Malfunctioning-LCD/ and fixed it. It took me less than 1 h.
