2015 Viper 2 7" Screen Replacement

Recommended Posts

I tried searching for this topic and came up empty but I'm sure it's already been discussed at length...

I have a 2015 Malibu 22VLX. The 7" screen is starting to delam and becoming occasionally glitchy. I'm looking into replacements. My local dealer said that Malibu has come out with an upgraded screen but they don't have any experience with it so don't know how "upgraded" it is. And they don't know whether it fixes the delamination issue. They are saying it's $4700 (CAN) plus programming and taxes. I'm choking at the price. 

What I'm wondering, is if anyone here has heard of the 'Upgraded' screen and if they know what is upgraded? Is it worth the extra money or should I try and pick up one of the originals knowing that it will have problems again in a few yearrs? Thanks.

Mine was flickering sometimes and stereo would stop playing. Had the screen replaced under warranty. Same issue. I also replaced the connection between the big screen and the small screen. Same issue. Turned out it was the join connection under the Audio amps panel. I opened the connector and spread each connection so the fit snug when reconnected together.  No more issue.
