  2. Locate the niche on the bottom right side of the phone. You can use your finger nail or a pry tool to pop open the battery cover. It is clipped on all around the phone. It shouldn't take too much force to open. It's quite easy to remove.

  4. Remove the two screws holding the camera lens cover on. Keep in mind they are two different sizes. Short one up top, longer one on bottom. Use a small phillips head screwdriver. (sorry for removing them before taking the pic) Remove the camera lens cover. I used my sharp pointed tweezers to pop the bottom of the cover up. It is also held in with small clips, much like the battery cover. Save the volume/power button from the old cover and reuse it with the new camera lens cover.

  5. Clean the camera lens and the new camera lens cover. Put the new cover in. I put the left side in at an angle first and then popped the right side in to the clips. Don't use too much force or it could possibly break the plastic Put the battery cover back on and slap your phone back in it's case if you have one. Done!
