    Thanks, There are just pieces missing so portions of the displays do show up. We just purchased this car and it is in mint condition (only 49,500 miles since 2001) The displays are the only real issues with the car. Not sure if I wiil fix. It doesn't seem to bother my wife so as long as she's happy I'm happy,. Thanks again!

These displays ared l.c.d. displays and what happens is over time the vacuum pack on the crystal element ruptures and get air in the tube and that part of the display is ruined permanently.I'm not sure if your saying that there are pieces missing or if the whole display is blank. If there are peices missing the only way to fix it is to repkace the instrument cluster. If they are blank it is very likley it is either the backlighting bulb or the dimmer switch. If you take a blanket and cover your display and can see the display very dimmly try replacing your back lighting bulbs- hopefully it is just your backlighting because the clusters are about 1,000 dollars and have to be special ordered with your mileage engraved in the new unit.

I believe you do not remove the lens - rather you open the trunk and find the back of the lamp (you'll have to remove the panel in front of it) and remove and change the bulbs from inside the trunk.
