Unhappy stock radio question?

Hello everyone I have a slight problem involving my radio. I broke the display on it, the screen is totally cracked so I am going to replace it with another stock radio, but my question is can I just buy one like say off eBay and swap em and everything be ok. Or is it going to be more difficult? Any advice and imput would be greatly appreciated

First thing I would do is see if the dealer will warranty it. If not, there are a ton of people on here basically giving them away (ok not really but fairly cheap)

Yes, just pull yours out and swap the new one in. At worse case the dealer would need to reprogram it, but I don't think that's the case.

My 2012 instruction manual mentions that the radios cannot be interchanged without a dealer re-programming it (to prevent theft). This isn't true?

Thanks guys. I actually called the dealership and gave the guy all my information (I just wanted to get a price for a new radio since my warranty is out) and he told me that I would have to take the car in and they would pull the old radio out and get the model number off of it. Then they would be able to order me a new radio. He said that their is different models of the same type of radio.

thanks I appreciated the help guys I''ll send y'all some pms
And to answer the question on how my radio broke in the first place, it is kinda embarrassing I still can't believe I did it, but I had a really really really really bad day at work so I was pissed off and when I got in my car the first thing I did was punch the radio. I feel so stupid for doing it
