Personally installing ACM or finding someone to do it

Our radio stopped working in July last year. We took our 2013 Taurus to the dealership and they quoted us $800 to replace the ACM but they weren't 100% sure that would fix it. I'm not willing to spend $800 on something they aren't sure about. I want to find the part and try it myself if I could get some guidance. Is there a youtube video or some other help? Also, where do we find the part? I looked on car-part.com but that part isn't listed. Was hoping to find a salvage Taurus to get one off of. Any information anyone could give would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Ginny

ACM or audio control module = radio if that helps. Yes there is a YouTube video, search 2013 Taurus radio removal.

Thanks. I looked and there are similar models. So do I need to remove it to get a part # before ordering one?

Probably the best way.

So we took it to the dealership we bought from. Now they are telling us it is the Front Display Interface Module and want to replace the backup camera as well to the tune of $1500. From what I've read this doesn't sound right to me. What do you all think? I haven't found a replacement online.
