Wanted, instrument cluster

I have searched e bay and other sites for a new instrument cluster. As usual, my mode botton stopped working. I can't use trip meters anymore. It bugs me. I have removed the cluster and cleaned the connections with electrical contact spray cleaner, no luck. I took it to an electronics repair shop. Guy says he will order me a new $3 switch, problem is, he has to release 27 soldier points and redo them after switch is installed. about $60 for his labor. I am looking for a used cluster instead, as it may be less costly option. With all the scrapped 2008 Vs out there, there has to be some used clusters. Help. Where else can I look?

I figured it out!! A good day is when you can't see through your visor or windshield b/c of the bug splatter!!!!

The cheapest i've seen those on ebay is $245.00 plus shipping used. A new one is $560.00. I have a spare one that i keep just in case something happens to the original. The $60.00 labor is not too bad compared to the prices above.. I had the one i got up for sale, was going to let it go for $120.00 and a guy gave me crap because i wouldn't sell it to him for a $100.00 shipped. He was pissed because i outbid him for it on ebay. So the video below was for him.

I did the repairing twice myself. The switches are crap, but they can be soldered out, cleaned with contactspray or replaced.
To get the switches out only 4 pins for each switch have to be desoldered.
Not so difficult, but it took me at least one hour to get them out, cleaning and place them back again.
Now I have soldered extra wires to the switch pins and these wires are now loose hanging under my hadlight just in case one of the switches goes down again.
But....it is not so easy...the switches can also be in permanent make mode and then my backup wires which i can use to do a make contact will not work.
And.....the rubber pins of push buttons are to weak and can easy fold double or slide away from the plastin pen on which they have to press in order to click the switch.
And...these plastic pins can get stucked.
Crap crap crap.
The best solution is to desolder the crap switches, place wires (only 2 needed per switch), and connect these wires to outside waterproof switches, like horn switches.
