Display Replacement

Hi, all.

I have a 2007 derv with the standard radio/heater display issues that seem to affect most Civics of this age: the letters appear to be all scrambled, with some not even being present at all - and, it's now got the to point where there is basically nothing left of the display at all.

I know that it's something to do with the solder on the pins behind the unit, but I've not got a soldering iron - so, I was thinking about ordering a 'new' unit. The only problem is - all of the ones I can find are for the sat-nav model, when I have an ES (without sat-nav). Will a sat-nav unit work in a car that never had sat-nav from the factory? Or, am I best buying a soldering iron?

Not only do you need a soldering iron, you also need the skills to use it. If you don't have both, then get someone who has to do it for you.

Once you've got the display out is a really easy soldering job. All of the contacts are easy to get at and not too close together. I managed this with a very basic soldering iron. I just heated each contact with a touch of fresh solder and its been fine for two years now.
