Can I replace the radio Tuner without replacing the NAV

My car has the tuner in the trunk and does not play FM, I am thinking is the tuner that is broken, can I a replacement one lets say an Alpine HD tuner and replace it without having to replace the NAV console in the dashboard

[edit]I've got NAV and my FM stereo is fading
There was a technical service bulletin for fading FM stereo reception on cars with navigation with the BM53 tuner. The fix is to replace the BM53 tuner in the trunk. Reference service measure #B65-209-04 with your dealer.
See the audio section of the WIKI on this site for some usefull info addressing your situation..

My FM is not fading away, the tuner just will not paly any FM stations at all, it does play AM just fine. I am trying to gather as much information I can before buying a new tuner
