    Default XE black control top - plastic only?

    I'm considering converting a factory yellow 7000XE to black. The case and the speaker grille don't bother me terribly... but that control top is a bit spendy. Does anyone know if it's possible to order the plastic only, rather than the whole top?

    The XE top control assembly actually comes apart & separates pretty easily, allowing removal of just the top plastic. Yet, Motorola claims they are not serviceable..

    I bit the bullet and ordered the parts from Mother... did the swap... volume and channel knobs didn't work. Flex was torn on the new control top from the factory. Now, waiting for a replacement...

    Once that's all done, I will have a complete yellow set available for sale, if someone wants it.

    NHN7088AS ASSEMBLY, SERVICE, HOUSING, BLACK, APX 700XE, M3.5
    NHN7053AS ASSEMBLY, SPEAKER GRILLE, BLACK
    01009506007 ASSEMBLY, CONTROL TOP, BLACK

    The case is ~$80, the speaker ~$40. Bring your own KY for that control top... they won't sell just the plastic so the part includes knobs, display, etc. It's almost $400. A little cheaper at dealer cost, but not much.

    I'd be willing to trade my black for green if anyone is interested.
