Repair Instrument Circuit board.....Xantia

Not mine but a V6 Activa owner in Brazil

The Fuel and Speedo have stopped and he reports problems with the circuit board being the problem....not sure what exactly the problem is atm so a bit of a general question
Can they (assume corroded/broken) repaired ?

Or...if anybody has one....would you sell it and ship to him if paid by PayPal ?

I've known the same problem repaired with a hot air soldering iron. Not on a Citroen but PCBs are PCBs.

I concur, if you look carefully at each joint, especially the ones on the connectors you will often see a crack in the solder around the connection, just run some solder onto the joint making sure it has all melted together, don't leave the soldering iron on there to long or all the flux will evaporate, the joint should be shiny when done.
