Tape player deletion (but leave rest factory ?) 08 RX350

Recommended Posts

Hello folks!

Does anyone know if it is possible to take just swap the black plastic faceplate from a unit with no tape deck onto a unit with tape deck? effectively just concealing that relic? Yes I know complete replacement or aftermarket unit is an option...

thanks!

Hi Pol...welcome to the Forum

I would think the tape deck will stand proud and the fascia won't fit but worth trying if cheap enough.

Blank over the tape deck? Never seen one without tape deck, have you got an image of this? .... Interesting

Just ebay 2008 lexus 6 cd and you will see plenty without tape. It appears tape was optional but always there on models with NAV which makes me wndr if there is something in the tape models thats needed extra for NAV (made other thread on this.)

I see also the TEXT button is in a different spot on the two units also... so buttons would be wonky but some of us don't use those buttons ever anyway :)

Took a look on ebay, I've not seen one like that before, must be a USA thing?
Anyway the tape deck looks not to be blanked but not there at all and the other stuff has been moved down a bit.
Also one radio buttom has AM-SAT

Thanks Jabowski :)

I believe certain versions with tape also have AM-SAT buttons... maybe it was an optional thing.

Maybe I'll glue a coinholder over the tape deck :)
