Replacing OEM headunit with OEM headunit

My AUX port on my stereo broke so I'm looking to swap the OEM headunit out with another OEM one with the same options (AM/FM Satellite Radio CD). Looking on ebay a lot of the ads say that it may require dealership reprogramming. Can anyone shed some light on if this will be required or what variables may make it required? I was hoping to just go out with the old and in with the new easy peasy. Any help is much appreciated. 2011 Malibu LT 2.4l

Also if anyone has one laying around I would glady take it off your hands!

Thanks

Re: Replacing OEM headunit with OEM headunit

The aux jack is soldered onto the printed circuit board inside the radio. Take the front face off, find a replacement jack or fix the one that's there, and reinstall. Then you won't need to get the VIN programmed for the "new" radio. Save $$$

Is this true for the 2006 Malibu Headunit?
