    Default Replacing Bezel on 9790

    Hello everyone.

    I've recently picked up a used 9790 for very cheap that has a badly scratched front bezel.

    I ordered a new bezel and housing (image: http://www.bb-parts.net/shop/images/...790len.600.jpg ) to replace it. After doing some research, it looks like I might have a bit of work ahead of me as I'll have to take the digitizer and whatnot out of the current one and put it into the new bezel before it can be put on the phone. I've been unable to find a guide or any information online as to how this can be done, or how difficult it is to do.

    Does anyone have any information about this? I reckon that a lot of us have 9790s that we wouldn't mind spending 10 or 15 bucks getting a new bezel and having it look brand new again.

    Thanks for your input.

    All of the videos I've found feature the taking apart of nearly everything else but the front housing itself. In all of the videos they take off the front housing (with all of the stuff still attached) and just place it aside while they dismantle the rest of the phone.
