Is it possible to replace screen & True Tone, Touchbar etc still work?


I need to replace my 13 inch 2019 A2159 Macbook screen, and I would like to try and do it myself to cut costs. I’ve read countless times of people online who did this and then afterwards the True Tone didn’t work, or the brightness sensor, or the Touch Bar stayed on permanently etc…

Some people say these things only work with the original screen connected to it’s original device and that Apple has made it somehow that once you connect a new screen you lose some of the functionality of these things..

I’d just like to ask if anyone knows if that is actually true? Or if I buy the correct display from Ebay and install everything correctly, is it actually possible that everything will work just as it did before??
