    Has anyone ever changed out the faceplate...from the stock black background to a more daytime visible white? I've seen a few sites and even someone saying to use copy paper...but can it even be done. This is for an 04 passat variant v6 4motion. The black background on the instrument cluster is...

    So, unfortunately I did not have a code for my radio, and after a battery disconnect it went into safe mode. When a mechanically-oriented friend attempted to remove it, to get the serial number, he damaged the metal housing prongs on the outside, and the faceplate. With the dash re-assembled...

    I have a Pioneer Avic-N1 hu and just recently one of the buttons on the faceplate stopped lighting up. It doesn't affect functionality but I was wondering if there's a way to fix this. I know I could buy a replacement but would rather not.
