I've just had my car returned from a garage, where it went in to diagnose if the clutch needed replacing. However on pickup of the car, I noticed the climate control LCD screen is now completely unreadable. The screen was perfect when I took the car in last Saturday, but on pickup today it just shows a bunch of hieroglyphics. The controls appear to still function however, perhaps it's just the LCD screen at fault.
The garage stated it must just be coincidence the screen has failed, which I have reluctantly accepted, but my question is what is the most cost effective way of getting it fixed?
The Climate controls and screen are embedded into the dash, but I assume I can access the screen when I take out the stereo CD 6000 unit above it?
The car is a Ford SMAX 2007 Titanium model.
