I just got a super sweet deal on a 2015 Leaf, but there are a few things that need to be fixed asap, so any guidance would be appreciated.
This car came with the sat nav touch display with the open/tilt function head unit. Just like the one pictured below:

I’m really concerned about the HU because the son of the previous owner managed somehow to hit the screen with a sharp object, rendering the touch function unusable and leaving a huge crack on the display. The screen opens as well, but it locks itself when opened, so you need to close it manually.
Previous owner will be covering all the expenses and already asked for a quotation of the spare parts, but I’m looking to get a faster solution, as Nissan Colombia usually takes 6 months to fix everything. Regarding this topic, I have a few questions:
1. My last car was a Mark 7 Golf GTI and it had a really aggressive component protection, requiring coding for the vehicle VIN and a security code to unlock the radio itself. Do Nissan have something similar? Or is it just a plug and play unit?
2. I’ve seen the units ranging from 600 to 850usd. Have you seen cheaper options?
3. I’ve seen people offering just the screen of the headunit. Should I get the screen? Should I get the whole unit?
There is a clunk when accelerating or letting your feet of the pedal as well (engine mount I guess?) but this may be addressed in another topic.
Thanks in advance!!
