Nokia 5310 Front Cover Replacement (Change Colors Too!)

Is the front cover on your nokia 5310 broken or really scratched up??  D0 you want to change the color of your 5310? If so then this is the guide for you!

You can buy a replacement Nokia 5310 Housing coverfrom eBay.

You will need a T6 torx driver to remove the screws.  I also recommend a thin plastic guitar pick to help undo the covers. Check your local home depot for a torx driver set.  They run about 5 dollars.  Some of the housings come with a driver and a pick

1. Turn off power to the phone

2. Remove battery cover and battery.
