Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
Everything works except the front screen?
Also when adjusting to the front screen do you hear any noises in the dash?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no I don't hear any noisesin the dash when adjusting to front screen

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
Ok the issue that you are having is the directional mode actuator inside of the dash has failed and is not switching to the screen as it is supposed to do. The actuator is stuck and will need to be replaced which requires the dash to be removed.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

is this a hard job to do or expensive to have done can you give a rough price or how hard is it to do by myself

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
Most of the dash has to come out and it requires about 4 hours of labor, the actuator itself is not expensive at all just the labor. I would recommend having a garage perform this job as it is not easy.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no there is noise from dash when switch is adjusted to screen

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
Ok. This is the actuator binding up and getting stuck.
