06 Envoy Bose Stereo Button Replacement

If I'm removing my faceplate on my radio cluster to replace some worn buttons will I have difficulty getting the radio to recognize the faceplate when I reinstall it?


I've got an 06 Envoy with the Bose 6 disc CD. The paint on several of the buttons on the faceplate have begun to wear off. I've got a used faceplate and my plan is to take off my faceplate, replace the damaged buttons, and reinstall my faceplate. I'm not switching faceplates, just a few buttons. I know that the security feature wouldn't allow me to use another faceplate without being reprogramed. Am I going to run into any problems with the security feature by removing and reinstalling my original faceplate? I had a devil of a time getting the circuit board off the donor faceplate in order to get to the buttons I'm going to replace. Not being an electronics guy, is there anything I need to avoid touching on the circuit board or any parts of it I should be very careful not to damage?

FYI they make a button decal kit. They look ok not bad at all. I had some paint missing on mine as well. I came across them one day on ebay. I know my local dealer carries them to.

I've swapped buttons on several radios, but it's always on used radios that are not intended for my truck, so they will already require "programming". I do not know if unplugging the face-plate will effect the security feature,.....

My input here is about "what not to touch": there are 4 screws that hold the circuit board to the face-plate. They are partially hidden from direct view because of a rubber "pad" that's kinda' stuck to the back of the circuit board........ I have to break a few of the little "tabs" that secure that rubber Pad in place, but I ALWAYS try to leave AS MANY of those tabs intact as possible. That pad is intended to protect the back of the circuit board from shorting out and I'm guessing it's position when everything gets re-installed is important. ( if all the 'Tabs' get broken than the 'Pad' will probably not be in the correct position. ) I usually break at least 2 maybe 3 tabs to be able to access all 4 screws.

It's a circuit board and you should always ground yourself before touching a circuit board, but I've 'man-handled' many of them and never had a problem.

These things look SOOoooooo much better with good/clean buttons !

You can replace the whole faceplate without any issues. I have done this to a few of these radios without any problems at all, the chip is in the radio itself....not the face.

Dorman sells the buttons and nob sets for these units that's what I use and yes they indeed fit the 2002 Bose 6 CD changer also. Unit looks brand new when done. Their application data for these is incorrect, these actually fit all the bose and GM units.

The buttons might fit, but aren't the 02 buttons specific to 02 ?? On the bottom row of some radios the button script / icons are different compared to later head units. ( + no "BAND" button )

Pretty sure 02 = orange colored "INFO" - P-TYPE" - "TRAF" and "P-TYPE: on the lower knob. (maybe just for non-BOSE ?? )

IIRC in 2003 the bottom buttons' script was the same - but white not orange colored, and the BAND button was used.

Pretty sure in 04 the button script changed to "<" - "TYPE" - ">" and the 2 "SEEK" buttons and "H" "M" buttons changed too.

I know the set that I purchased had all the correct buttons and I believe the dials on the exterior are the modern type with the little ridges on it the little the little ridges on them otherwise everything that was there fit to answer your question the information on the knobs being different when sliding on a 2002 these knobs in fact do fit the unit. I really don't recall the script on them being that major the difference but when you replace all of them the unit basically looks brand new and you won't even notice any difference after you turn it on. For those that have the CD player not working I know where you can get those too brand new just open it up install plug it in boom you're working again.

Haven't had a chance to work on this yet--it got warm and everything started growing so trying to play catch up on the yard work.

Is there a trick to getting the volume and tuning knobs/dials off the faceplate? I was able to get them off using a screw driver on my donor faceplate but don't want to scratch up my faceplate when I get time to work on this project. I can get the center index out of these two but the knobs themselves are kind of tricky.

My donor is from an 04 Tahoe and it's got the same button names as my 06 Envoy so I'm good to go there.

If I recall, you have to pull the outer off and the both pop out together, you have to pull hard but no screwdriver was used.

The inner and outer nubs are installed together and they just pop off and then in as a unit not each separately....maybe there is something on youtube...mine at first were a bitch and then I Got them to come off. It's a tension snap fit but they will come off...if your worried the guys at the local car radio shop can pop them for you in like 2 seconds. You pull the outer ring and both come off together.
