Thanks to OP Woogie for the comprehensive write-up. An excellent tutorial.

The part has increased to $130 shipped, but I'm surprised and happy Pioneer still stocks the part. Woogie's part number worked perfectly for my '99 ES.

One tip: don't forget to peel off the clear protective adhesive Pioneer puts on the display window. If I hadn't noticed a small air bubble, I might have left it on. Disassembling the radio gave me a good chance to check out the "innards". I was specifically looking for bulging or distorted capacitors; happily, I found none.

One other note: when pulling off the plastic front radio cover, pull straight out. There are two electrical connections being disconnected at the bottom of the front panel. It might fight you a small bit.

If you have burned out LEDs in the temp panel below the radio, this is a great time to disassemble that panel and replace them. very simple twist in and out. Mine are fine, but I still twisted them in and out a few times for a good electrical cleaning.

Thanks again, Woogie!

Smile Woog post still works for 99 ES300

Thanks for your post as the part number had not changed but the price did. It was $139 shipped from Japan.

Replaced and works great. Car back to original condition!

Thanks

Never paid attention before but now after reading placing the radio led and light board I feel the radio until in the outside feel hot...is it normal?
