Introduction

The rear LCD screen's plastic cover provides protection for the sensitive LCD screen beneath it. If the cover is scratched or damaged, it would obstruct the display of the screen. The replacement of the plastic cover should be handled with care in order to avoid damaging the plastic frame which holds it.

I followed all the steps and was able to dis- and reassamble everything in under 30min. When you reassamble make sure that in step 4 the metalplate of the housing is turned correctly and the connector is in the right position. Both could be turned 180° and mounted incorrectly. Other than that easy repair.

Thanks guys
