Hate it when something quits working. Even if you can live without it, you know it's there and it ain't right. Fixed the cigarette lighter for that reason. Never used it, but it just wasn't right. The DIY link you provided looks very well done. It's a keeper.

Bummer! first that I have heard of this problem. Looks like a real pain in the ass to fix. Gotta have HUD. In my search for Corvettes not having HUD is a disqualification. Hope you get yours fixed Martin

If your digging the HUD...I had the HUD added to my 2001 c5 z06 and it wasn't a big deal. Of course its better to buy a vehicle with it....(I think all corvettes after 2001 had the plug in the dash to accept the hud..)

As far as C6's go? there is a guy in conn. thats installing the full hud unit for 495 dollars parts included...

I know that GM has a different windshield for HUD equipped cars but with my c5 z that I added hud...I never swapped out the windshield and it was fine...

Sorry to go slightly off topic..

Good luck fixing the HUD unit.

I added HUD to my 04 Coupe. It was a bigger problem gathering all of the parts that installing it.
