In my 04 SW the multifunction display screen is polarised the wrong direction.

With my polarised sun glasses I can read the trip meter and the temperature control digital displays, but the multifunction is completely black. To read the time I have to tilt my head.

I'm just wondering whether this is common with all displays or if it's worth trying to find another at the wreckers that is polarised correctly.

No, the display is fine. Without polarised sunglasses you wouldn't know there is an issue.

The problem is that the glass in front of the display is polarised in the wrong direction.

Sunglasses are all polarised vertically, so the multifunction display must have horizontally polarised glass. This combination results in no light from the screen reaching my eyes behind the sunglasses.

If I tilt my head 45 degree, like a dog, I can just make it out. Lean right over and the screen is fully visible again.

So my inital question again:

Does anyone know if all multi-function displays are polarised the same direction?
