Default OEM Bezel WITHOUT Side Buttons

Please Login to Remove!

I foolishly ordered an OEM bezel without buttons, thinking that the buttons from my old bezel would transfer over. It seems that the side buttons are attached pretty strongly.

Is there a way to transfer these side buttons to my new bezel? Or should I just take the hit and order a bezel WITH side buttons?

Thanks!
Kevin

I took the side buttons from my original bezel and installed them on my new Black bezel. The buttons are not attached and can easily be swapped over. I didn't have any problems.

Search for posts from "michaelalanjones". I used his step-by-step to swap bezels and buttons.
