Dot Matrix Display Replacement in Gauge Cluster

Can these be replaced on these clusters? Mine has a few dead pixels. I've had to do this in 2 Audis over the years, so I assume this is do-able, but I'm scared to death to ask the P-car dealer the price!

Anyone have any info?

Several years ago I wanted to buy a replacement LCD display for the old style 996 cluster for my 986. I checked with VDO (who makes the cluster) and several speedometer shops. The shops told me that VDO did not sell parts for the electronic clusters. VDO never got back to me. I do not know if this has changed over the years.

Other than the knobs, Porsche does not sell parts for the new style cluster.
