Are you talking about the whole piece that holds the bulbs? If so I have one that I took out of my ohc that you could have.

Yeah man, I did. My 2010 doesn't have that whole 2nd layer that the earlier models do. My second layer only comes about 6 inches from the windshield up ... I had to be very careful with my drills

Everytime I hit a bump now the screen goes out but then comes back. Could that be a loose ground? It was working perfect...

My Expedition OHC would go out, then I could press the mode button really hard, and it would stay on for a few days, then go out again. Or I could give it a good smack and it would come back on, then off again in a few days.

See if either of those work. It may be the ground, or in my case, bad contacts on the resistors/missing resistors.

I could walk you though a resistor fix, if that's the problem.
