I replaced my se k800i faceplate last month.

The pictures on the pdf above are helpfull but i would like to add some advices:

- Remove the SIM card before start this job.
- The memorystick cover can be replaced after all: close your phone completely without the memory cover. Then, insert the tip of the cover inside the hole and press it with an thin screwdriver / back of a sewing nedle / knifepoint.

Hello.

I have been trying to replace the fascia of my K800 for a few hours, but there is one step I could not figure out: how do you separate the "metallic" part of the front cover from the rest of the structure, so that you can retrieve the two buttons and the speaker protection grid and transfer them to the new fascia?

I could not find any hint about that in any of the two parts of the procedure posted above... But as andrea mentionned that you had to "transfer all the little fiddly bits, the rubber buttons, from the old one to the new", I thought that maybe someone had the same problem and could clarify that part for me.

Thanks for any hint you could provide.

 == > I finally managed to unclip the metallic part... for me it really was the hardest part of the replacement!

         So, I am still interested if anyone has a simple method to propose to facilitate this step :)

Dan,

What do you exactly mean by "the speaker came apart"?

It seems the speaker is, originally, somehow glued to the front cover and it seems perfectly normal that it goes with the front cover when you separate the phone main body from this cover. The speaker has two golden connectors that ensure contact with the main board when the phone is assembled.

Apparently, you normaly have to separate the speaker from the front cover, which can be done quite easily by using a small tool (regular screwdriver for instance) as a lever on the tiny bit of grey plastic that is attached to the upper right corner of its otherwise rectangle shape.

Any ideas??

 I'm really stuck as i don't want to force it and i cant change the case until it is removed

 The problem is that i can't remove the plastic strand that connects the memory slot cover to the main chassis

 For some reason it isn't in the guide

hi.

you can remove the memorycard cover after openning your phone.

it is impossible to take it with the phone closed (only if you tear it).

Hi,

I am also stuck - how do you actually get the soft rubber memory card cover to unclip from the main chassis of the phone?  Do you have to dismantle the chassis of the phone too?  I have dismantled the front and back covers but this little bit is defeating me.  The M2 cover attaches through the original fascia into the body of the phone preventing me getting the fascia off.

I also have another tip not in the guide: Make sure the lens cover is closed when you do the dismantling.

Thanks for any advice.

Well, i think you'll need to remove everythig.

Remove the two plastic peaces that are attached to the chassis, one on front and another on the back of the phone, where are placed all the parts such as the screen, keypad, camera lens, speaker and etc.

Once done, you can remove the memory card cover.

Good luck.

I have removed the rear cover.  The front cover is free of the chassis (upon which practically all the electonic parts are attached), but the M2 cover is still hooked into the innards of the phone, through the front fascia.  From what I can gather the M2 cover is attached by a "barbed" piece of "hinge" rubber which locates inside the main chassis.  How does one loosen this "hinge" from the main chassis without ripping the hinge and leaving a piece inside the chassis?  Are you saying I have to dismantle the pieces attached to the chassis - like the lcd screen, the camera, and the other bits and pieces not directly attached to the fascia?

Many thanks,

RtX
