  • Take off the back cover.

My cover is broken - the rubber is lifting from the hard plastic. What can I do? Where can I purchase replacement cases? Perhaps the iFixit app could affiliate with the parts suppliers and host a link for when parts go missing or broken.

Thanks for the hint. We added a link to the spare part directly from Fairphone (also for all the other guides and parts). Be aware that Fairphone only ships to European continental countries as stated on their page: https://support.fairphone.com/hc/en-us/a...

It wasn’t obvious that the outer rim of the cover alaso need to be unclipped after the back cover was removed.

Once I did that, everything was easier.

It wasn’t obvious that the outer rim of the case also needed to be removed. Once I worked this out, everything was much easier.

I am with Stephen Morton. I didn’t understand that there was an independent rim, but once I saw Stephen’s comment, it was quite easy. I think you should add this as a stage in this process.
