The LCD display screen has gone out and requires replacement. The radio has to come out of the vehicle. First determine the cost of the new screen (probably only from Ford - therefore expensive) as compared to the cost of a replacement radio. I have never replaced one from Ford, but most are the same. The screen is detachable from the radio. The cover detaches from the housing, and the screen detaches from the module it plugs into. Every is made of plastic and most parts snap together and requires a little prying to take apart. Therefore there is a good chance you are going to break something either during disassemply or reassembly. Be careful of static charge blowing out something on the new screen. My suggestion is to purchase a replacement radio and be happy. Then play around with the old one to see how much time you saved in the process.

Thanks for the detailed answer, I highly appreciate your advise. BTW today I have to part the vehicel out of shade, in sun for about 6 hours, and when it surprised me when I saw the LCD lit up, as of the heat did some thing to the LCD something. Let's see how long it lasts. Anyhow thanks again for explaining all the technical detas. Good day.
