Can I replace the entire rear housing?

I broke the rear glass on my iphone 8. It looks really hard to scrape off the glass and replace that part, so I was wondering if I can replace the entire back of the phone? I could just take out all the parts and transfer them, but the wireless charging coil looks like it's near-impossible to remove successfully. Does anyone know where I can purchase a rear housing including the wireless charging coil? Am I even on the right track with this?

Thanks

The wireless charging coil can be removed, heating it with the heat gun can make it easy to be removed. The iPhone 8 backhousing is not available now.

I have kind of the same problem, but - yet still a little worse:

My iPhone 8 has been dropped on a parking lot with an uneven surface - and run over by a car!

So, the entire back housing is bend quite a lot (strangely enough, neither the back glass or the screen seems to be damaged at all).

But it looks odd, and being the skilled industrial technician I am, I’ve tried to bend it back into the correct shape. This cannot be done, since the aluminium kinda hardens the first time it is bend out of shape - and cannot be forced back to its original shape.

So, it would be very appreciated if anyone could help, regarding where I can buy a new back housing.

yes you can buy a back glass with mid frame and small parts installed or with a charging coil installed or just bare.
