a couple of members of our forum indicated that if you remove the cluster and attempt to re-solder the connections from the wiring to the PCB for the LED matrix, they can be repaired. Another post indicated that after running the lamp test from the OBC that the missing pixels in his instrument cluster display were restored. I had my instrument matrix display replaced under warranty so I dont' know whatt eh cost would have been. Suffice it to say, it won't be cheap, so I'd try the rebuld before I paid for a new display, since it will be scrapped anyway.

Search or ask the member who did these fixes to post the technique for you.
