Do you mean 'MyWay' (RNEG) or eMyWay (RT6)? There's no system called a My Drive.

I'e just checked from your VIN on a previous request and it would seem you probably mean MyWay if that's what you are replacing.

Hae a look at the list of Lexia / Diagbox owners here:

At the bottom of the list there is a Google map, that shows you where they are all located. If you find one, you can then use the link back on the list to send them a private message. Bear in mind not all members are active all the time.

Several things need to happen:

1) The donor unit will need to have your car's VIN coded into the unit for it to work.
2) The donor unit will be from either a Citroen, DS, or Peugeot vehicle and will very likely have different factory-fitted equipment or options. Therefore the unit's ECU will have to be configured to match the equipment and display options of your vehicle. An example being that on some Peugeot models, the multi-function display screen is of the retractable type, that is not fitted to Citroen or DS, so the correct options have to be programmed in. So you need to know what configuration changes, if any (depending on what the donor vehicle had) need to be made before it will operate properly.

You may struggle to find anyone willing to do this during the coronavirus pandemic. There's also the lockdown to bear in mind as well.

The unit in the car packed up at Christmas so waiting for the current situation isn’t an issue
