Default Removing front glass panel

Please Login to Remove!

I have a lot of dust under the layer of glass on my 8310....Is it possible to easily take the front glass panel off to remove the dust, then put it back on? I tried a little bit to prop the glass off, and it looks like it will pop off easily, but I don't want to break it if its not supposed to be removed. Thanks for your help.

I would search for dissasembly instructions and take it apart correctly. I believe Cellular Accessories - Tools, Motorola, Panasonic, Apple, LG, Mobiado, Sony, SonyEricsson, Alcatel, Ben has some directions on there

Search in youtube on how to replace the glass. I think I saw there on how to replace a broken glass.

There is a sticky thread at the top on how to disassemble it. It also has a link down in the thread somewhere to another site with different pictures.
