Does anyone have any updated advice on control panel failures? We have a 2009 Cali. While camping this weekend the control panel became almost unreadable. Lines missing. Fortunately could see just enough to get the roof down! Don’t fancy paying £750+ for replacement/repair and don’t have skills for DIY.

If you don't fancy DIY you will probably have to go to a dealer and pay up. There are lots of posts regarding fixes and where to get spares or repairs done but you'd need to remove the panel and send it away. Try a search " control panel" , lots of reading!

You can send your panel away for repair. Someone will be along soon with the link. Don't go to VW in the meantime.

Thanks all. The verotronics option looks doable.

Although the display has nearly returned to normal now ...?

Good timing this post as our 2nd panel is starting to miss lines again. It's only about 4 years old as well which is what the first one lasted for, pathetic really.
Although the original was out of warranty VW paid 40% so our replacement "only" cost us about £430 from memory.
Looks like I'll be looking into the verotronic option this time.

It comes and goes. Eventually it will go and never come back!

An update on this from last year. We went with verotronics and so far so good.

Quick turnaround and relatively simple to remove and put back.
