STOPWATCH - STOPPÜHR - LAPTIMER - CHRONO
All the words above mean the same if you have a Mercedes 190E 2.3-16 , Mercedes 190E 2,5-16 or even a Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution 1 or even better Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution 2. This part is the icon if your interior and needs to be good! I started this project back in 2012 to be the first one to have a OEM solution for the stopwatches of our cars. Since i made this part myself i can maintain the quality of it and give warranty on the screens. For more then 8 years there isnt 1 screen that is started to bleed again after my replacement lcd is installed. Like you can see on the pictures below its a full 100% OEM solution, with the correct digits, sizes all is correct and working.
The Mercedes 190E 2.3-16v, 2.5-16v, EVO1 and EVO2 models all feature additional instruments in the center console which differ from other Mercedes 190 models. One of these three gauges is a Lap timer (stopwatch / stoppuhr). This component often suffers from a bled LCD screen so you are unable to read lap times or has some other issue that stops it from working. Bled lap timers can also spoil the interior look of your car.
I drove my 1985 Mercedes 190E 2.3-16v for more than 4 years which I had fully restored over that time except for the broken lap timer. I finally came up with a working solution to repair the lap timer so it became fully functional again and made the interior of the car look like it did when it came out of the factory.
People ask me alot why do i have to buy your Repairservice or the DIY kit while i can buy a second hand working laptimer which still has the original screen inside which works perfect! Well i can tell you why not to buy a second hand unit for to much money and this is way. When you look close to the pictures below you will see the problem of the bleeding laptimer. It starts always from the edges and then its starts to grow, sometimes fast sometimes slow, but it will grow for sure. Almost 30% of the LCD display is behind the plastic cover and you will not see it, and thats where the bleeding starts! When you look to my pictures you will see that this LCD screen was looking good, but when i did open the laptimer i saw that it already was starting to bleed! It was just a mather of time before you could see it. Thats the reason why not to buy a second hand unit for 100+ euro`s but to buy one of my services so you will know you have a good LCD screen inside your laptimer which will work for another 20 years or more! Also there is no need to change or install new zebra strips! Install new onces often cause a screen failure or damage the lcd in the worst case. With my expierience in the last 10 years iam also be able to restort and fix your broken laptimer.
Having found it almost impossible to find a replacement Lap Timer (Mercedes do not supply them anymore) I spent a lot of time researching and developing a lap timer repair so I could have a fully functioning one in my car again.
