Default Trackball Replacement ?

Please Login to Remove!

I posted this thread in the wrong section and I wanted to get the opinions of the 8320 curve owners

Allright. I followed all of the threads speaking to how to fix the sunken trackball issue that has plagued the curve. Everything went well until I went to re-install the trackball with the protective ring. I ended up destroying the silver ring.

I ordered a new ring and trackball mechanism. Before I tear this one up, is there some special way these are to be installed. Do you fit the ball mechanism in the ring first and then insert the entire unti as a whole, or do you put the ball mechanism in the phone and then try to place the ring in between the mechanism and the body of the phone. How does the ring snao in place without bending the prongs

Clark the moderator advised that the ball mechanism goes in first. Is there any special trick to inserting the ring with its metal prongs. It is that which I messed up before
