    I know for a fact they can program a new screen to a car on a half canbus model, Vauxhall were able to reprogram a Colour Information Display (CID) that I bought from Portugal for my NCDC 2013 Navi system. So even if its not fully unpaired or you dont have the car pass number from the other car, it can be done, how hard it is, I cant say.

    What type of screen do you have?

    TBH honest, its less than a 10 minute job to swap the screens over, its just the programming/re-programming that takes a while.

    Hi mate,I got one from ebay for £50 brand new and took it to my local dealers who tech 2'd it into my car for £37. If you manage to get one from a donor car and get it tech 2'd out of it they are able to tech 2 it back into your own car no hassle. The price they quoted you is about right but have a look thru ebay or visit a breakers yard and see if yo could get hold of somebody that coul divorce it from that car. hth u.

    edit here's the type of thing that sells on ebay.

    Whats wrong with your current one. If it is cracked you could get another screen cheaply second hand. Take them apart and just swap the lcd bit. Keep your circuit board and programings not an issue....

    The screen and the circuits are faulty,to be honest i haven't got the time to investigate it,there probably are cheaper alternatives.
