Default What parts do I need for my Curve?

Please Login to Remove!

The other day I got my Curve 8320 wet while texting on it after a shower. Now, the trackball has a mind of its own, clicking on things when I don't press the ball in and not clicking on things when I do press down on the ball. Also, some of the keys don't always register on the first tap. While texting I often have to go back and re-stroke some of the keys, because it did not register the first time.
I pulled my phone apart to see if there would be a touch of rust or water remanece on a board that the keypad lies on. I got as far as the 4 larger screws (prob t-6's), on the keyboard and I do not have the proper screwdriver to remove those. I'm guessing if I replace the trackball and the key pcb, my problem will be resolved. If this is not the part that would cause the malfunction explained above, please let me know and it will be greatly appreciated. Also any links to the parts I need will prove to be helpful.
Thank You
