Mike, are you looking to replace because you've lost the illumination to the buttons. It so make sure someone hasn't turned the radio off. When off I get no illuminations.

What are you trying to achieve? If it's just the bigger screen another member installed it with no problems: http://www.fordowner...f-display-unit/

Otherwise the only reason for getting the 9 button stereo (as opposed to the standard 6 button) is to add Bluetooth. Parts easily available on eBay, just the wiring loom you may need from Ford or a friendly scrappy that hasn't ripped it to pieces. Then you need someone with Ford IDS software (same as the dealers use) to activate Bluetooth/USB.
