How do i change the housing on my 6500 slide mobile
You need a T5 screwdriver and a new housing... Use an Original housing, copies dont usually fit right...
1, Remove Back cover and Battery.
2, Remove 4 T5 screws at the back of the phone, run your fingernail/opening tool around the housing and it should come away a little, dont pull it apart as there are 2 ribbons one for the Screen the other for the keypad.
3, Turn the phone over and run your fingernail under the keypad.
4, Carefully take the bottom half away with the phones PCB still in the bottom housing, using a flat screwdriver carefully lift off the two Ribbons
5, You can then remove the keypad from the top part of the phone, this is stuck on by double sided tape pull downwards, there are 2 spring loaded pieces on each side.
6, Remove the 4 T5 screws, 2 under where the Keypad was and 2 at the top
7, Again using your fingernail or a opening tool run around the edge and the screen part should come apart, dont damage the ribbon
You now have the phone apart take out the bits and change what you like :)
