Has anyone replaced their COMAND screen with the "MERCEDES-BENZ COMAND NAVIGATION MONITOR LCD DISPLAY 2005 2006 SL500 LQ065T9AR02U" (e-bay, germanaudiotech, $225)? I think it's made by Sharp.

Thanks, Bil

I just did this about a month ago. Not sure where you are, but I’m in the US - I used tomway360 - they have stock in the US for $125 or you can wait for shipping from China for -$90. I opted for the US stock so I could get it in a day or two. It looks fantastic installed (and I think they all come from the same factory in China anyway no matter who you buy from).

“New LQ065T9AR02U LCD Display for Mercedes Benz C/E/CL/CLS/S/SL/M/GL/ML Class”

Make sure you have a good small electronics toolkit - not just a precision screwdriver with a few bits because they aren’t small enough (there are a bunch of tiny torx screws and nuts). I bought a set from Lowe’s for $25 and I was glad I did.

“Kobalt 50-piece small electronics repair screwdriver bit set”

Also, to avoid stripping the minuscule torx screws that hold the screen in (there’s something like 15 of them) I had to apply a lot of downward pressure to get them to release. I almost stripped the first couple and would’ve have been “screwed” if I did.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the valuable information! It's always helpful to not have to rediscover fire. Will be ordering it tomorrow. Unfortunately I left my micro electronics tools at home - 2000 miles away. My son found the car for me to surprise my wife for our anniversary. Want to get it all up to snuff before we ship it home in a few weeks. BTW, she was speechless!

Thanks again,
Bil

So, what does it look like? What's it supposed to do?

Not sure, but I can't find one for a 2004.

Take a look at "Zephyr411's response above, and check tomway360 on ebay. I did a google search "ebay tomway360 New LQ065T9AR02U LCD Display for Mercedes Benz C/E/CL/CLS/S/SL/M/GL/ML Class. There are pictures of the screen along with additional details. It's my understanding this screen works on the 2004 SL500 COMAND unit.

guys I just did this job on my COMAND unit. Very easy but a question: has anyone else had any issues with the image turning out misaligned/cut off?
