Climate Control Display Panel

My Display / LED Climate Control has lost it. I can get a replacement kit for $109 AUD (about $70 US).
Interested in comments on those that have done it & the degree of difficulty

Stupidly simple. It takes 5 minutes once you have the CC unit out.

3 screws to remove front panel, I think about six screws to separate the circuit board from the front panel, twist the metal LCD frame tabs straight to remove it from the board, then pull it free. Swap panels, then put it back together.

No soldering required. You'll need a philips head screwdriver and a pair of pliers (standard or needle nose).

I used the kit from 914rubber, it works perfectly and super easy to install.

Just did this & agree it is a very simple repair with the 914rubber kit -- well worth it. Thanks for the suggestion & happy to have my display back to perfect!
