    i also did this very pissed. i ordered one off ebay but have not received it yet. should have it by next week. as for which version you need same say when u remove the lcd it should be located behind it. but i couldnt find mine. but under where the lcd was on the right side of the trackball there should be a small number engraved there. mine said 001 so i ordered that. hopefully its the right one. but from what i heard rogers ones do use the 001/004 version. hope that helps and good luck. ill follow up on this when i get my screen.

    I did some searching.. its a tiny number etched into the bottom back of the lcd...at the very bottom... its is not any writing or markings or nothing, its etched into the metal making it dificult to see... my screen is 002-004.....

    Hey guys, just got the bazel replacement, I really have to say, the only way to replace the lens is by using peanut butter. At first I coudlnt believe it but when u use peanut butter and let it set at the edges then take something like a towel, I used a q tip and slowly take the adhesive away. I got the tip from the person who did it with the pink berry. It incredible, but I will definitly post some pic when I get the chance, I'm at a club as we speak lol, n e way much love to the crackberry nation. Gl with the replacement screen order it at cnn!

    Just to make sure I'm understanding this correctly...you didn't just use the peanut butter to remove the adhesive after removing the screen, you actually used it to remove the screen from the lcd itself without damaging the lcd??? How did you do this?

    Hey Guys!
    Just got back from the club, and I can't explain it but must be ether my bro was looking at some porno website but my computer won't turn on grrrrr.... N e way I'm in bed now and I wanna try to explain the process. First I didn't take pic step by step, quite honestly I just simply tried this trick to see if it actually worked. Well n e way, first the entire screen is glued on to the lens. There no way of separating this unless if u have something to rub the adhesive away. Literally it is stuck on, but it really does require patients. First I want to give a shout out to the original poster who I got the idea from, I search pinkberry and found the person that swaped her entire mount and was the only person successfully able to remove the lens. In her post she mentioned that she used peanut butter to remove the adhesive from the lens and lcd. I googled "peanut butter removal adhesive" and found that it is truly a substance used quite commonly to take out glue adhesive. Anyway I started very slow, I first put a small slab of peanut butter on the side edges "after I removed the screen from the mother board!". n e way I let it sit for a good 10 min, after I took a q tip and wiped it off. Long behold I saw that a few part of the adhesive was removed! I did that once again, in order for me to go in deeper I gently let me reiterate "GENTLY" left the screen and used a business card and daped a bit of peanut butter and put it in between the lens and screen. Let it sit and took a q tip and wiped it off. Slowly the screen became easier and easier to gently left up. As I applied to the edges it slowly peeled off. Let me tell u this, it took me a good hour to do this. And my screen smelled like peanut butter with a bunch of peanut butter residue on it! :P lol but once it apart I simply took a cloth and my monster len cleaner and simply wiped everything away. After I attached the new screen but so far I've got only one problem. There so damn glue or adhesive I can apply to my lcd to stick to my new lens!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dirt and bubble are forming that I've noticed by just ether accidentally touching the lens or leaving it in my pocket and apparently my legs are putting pressure on it. So I'm getting annoyed by it. From my recommendation, I say leave the black screen the way it is, it simply not worth the trouble and hassle. I mean I purchased a screen protector because I didn't want dust to form under the screen. Now because of this procedure I have the worst of both world, dust and air bubbles!! Arg! Ether way I'm not glad I did it and I'm currently ordering a new lcd from cnn! Thanks hope this info helps. Now my fingers are tired as heck....... Hahah gnight crackberry

    Reading this got me wondering...

    The Motorola KRZR and RAZR2 both had parts that were bonded in the same fashion, namely the glass on the outside of the flip.

    According to the repair manuals, the glass is removed by heating with something like a blow dryer, which softens the adhesive enough to allow the parts to be separated. I wonder if this would work on the Bold.

    Reassembly involved a special pressing fixture.
