    I am the proud owner of an 09 GMC Sierra. I just went turkey hunting with a friend and as we exited the truck to try our luck one of the shot guns glanced the radio and smashed the radio display. it broke the lens and LCD behind it:grrrrrr: no biggie just get on the internet and find replacement lens and LCD right :grrrrrr: WRONG it is no were to be found. I have been able to find many places that will fix it for me (for a price).

    I would like to think that if I could find the parts I know I could fix it. The LCD just plugs into the circuit board and the lens is probally glued on or something to that effect .....right?

    any advice or assistance would be awesome.

    And Yes we both got turkeys that day so it made the radio thing a little easier to deal with.

    replacement parts for a GM electronic device is a big problem. you would have to find a scrap yard vehicle to swap out the parts. GM parts are not available. the electronic components are a secret code and this makes using parts from another supplier very difficult. this would require a electronic repair shop authorized by GM to make repairs/get parts. My guess would be a few hundred to fix. good luck .. if you do find a part supplier please post it .

    This may be of some help. Here is a link to used auto parts; there a lot of listings, so you should be able to find one close to you.

    I sent you a pm with contact info for a company that may be able to help you out. Let me know if they can not help you, I have a list with a few more radio part suppliers.

    I do not find this to be true at all. Google is your friend! Sure, you can not run up to the local parts store to get them, but they are out there. It took some research and using multiple key word searches, but I know of at least two sites that can provide things for radios like new face plates, new buttons, new bulbs, and new cd mechanisms. In many cases the radio rebuild companies do not list parts for sale on their site. They must just think that many owners will not attempt such a repair. But, I have found that calling and asking them if they have parts for sale is beneficial. What is the worst they can say? No! I bought a new 6 disc cd mech for under $100 a few months ago from one of those sites.

    I will not post the supplier here because they are not a vendor, but if you want the info PM me. The price for a face plate with new circuit board, new bulbs, and new screen is $75-$110 depending on what radio model he has. A picture would help.

    I realize this is an old thread but thought I'd post some recent information I found regarding OEM parts for GM radios. I needed replacement buttons and knobs for my OEM navigation unit in a 2005 Suburban. GM doesn't have part numbers for these items. I didn't want to use repair kits to put "overlays" on the keys. Turns out Specmo has the parts I wanted and shipped them to me in two days - total price for eight buttons, two knobs and shipping was $56 compared to nearly $150 for other online retailers. Specmo also sells other items such as displays and some circuit boards.

    Specmo doesn't allow you to order online. You have to call them to determine availability but I was told they have lots and lots of replacement items for OEM GM radios. I found Specmo listed on several other GM truck and car web sites. However, they don't show up when searching for online sellers.

    Check them out at http://www.specmo.com/
