Good tear down procedure.

I replaced Charging Port on my Samsung SGH-i537 about a week ago (Before I found this “Tear-Down Procedure”.)! You did a nice job putting this information together!

It’s relatively simple, although sometimes I feel like “the more information the better”!

I DO HAVE A QUESTION: After I removed the screws, and separated the two halves of my phone, I turned the front half face-up, and a small, flat, black clip I didn’t notice, fell from SOMEWHERE! Despite my looking for many various possibilities as to where this clip goes back into my phone, I didn't find a place that it would fit properly. I’m sure it’s location is staring me in the face, but I’m still not finding it!

After a whole lot more looking, one square centimeter at a time, I reluctantly decided to put my phone back together without this “clip”.

The phone works great! But I know this “clip” was in it for a reason, so I’m having a hard time calling this repair a complete success!

Does anybody know exactly where this “clip” goes?

Thanks!

Roger.
