Help?

Anybody here know a lot about working with small electrical stuff-circuit boards and printed circuits? I am working on my instrument cluster and need to know about removing some solder to switch parts from one cluster to another and changing power to ground on the printed circuit. I'm not familiar enough with the small stuff so any help is appreciated.

Nick

im not expirienced, but you'll need a solder pen, a solder sucker, and and the cleaning fluid for soldering.

get an appropriate sized solder pen, and try to touch only the solder. quickly suck it off. if you apply heat too long it can damage the electronics your trying to work with. and iirc, you clean with the fluid after you suck the solder off.

you may be out of luck if the panel was done via robot, they are far more efficient with solder, for that there may be another solution...
