Default XK/XF touch screen interchangeability

Hi, I have a thread going in the XF section related to touch screen emergency OS (basically a screen full of computer programming code) and am wondering if anyone has experience of replacing an XK touch screen with a used screen from an XF of same year. They look the same but due to higher availability of XF used parts, the XF screen costs about 20% of an XK used screen. Link to original thread is below and I appreciate any advice on how to resolve at reasonable cost. Thanks!

A qualified yes. Your 08 is interchangeable with certain versions from the XF. As part of an experiment we did some time ago, 8X2310E889AC, 8X2310E889AD were used by me with software provided by Cambo (see other thread). Other newer head units might work but I can't say for certain beyond those two. I might have tried it on an AF version too, just don't recall.

BUT, it is not plug and play. You would still require an XK software load following a process like the one in the TSB in the other thread (but with XK software) because the heating and seat heater controls won't work.

So it is not plug and play but it's doable.

Also you may see the 2010 - 2014 XK head units going for less that the 07-09. Same logic applies to those. You would need to load the 08 software. The 07 XK head unit is the same as yours and will work without updates, but cost will prolly be the same. Any mods you have like ACM, satellite, should show up once the XK software is loaded as those add mods are not stored in the head unit.

It is also worth noting that if it is just the screen, backlight or touchscreen sub-assembly that has failed, the screen and electronics sub-assembly is available on eBay new. The assembly is Toshiba LTA070D010F. They are available for about $100.

It is all plug and play, but there are a lot of screws to remove, and you should be familiar with how to plug and unplug flat flex cables without damaging them similar to those on a laptop computer. I repaired mine and it has been solid for a year now. No programming or soldering needed for this sub-assembly repair. Here is an example listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LTA070D010F...8AAOSw~gRV5Tym

That being said, I am not sure if this is applicable to your specific problem.
