    Dented BB 8800 cover

    Advertisement



    Dear Stackers,
    I just dropped my BB8800 and there's a dent on the battery cover and right side chrome.
    Is there any place where I can buy the battery cover and side cover ?
    Appreciate your help.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,
    Andreas

    I hadnt either until I found that site. I always buy a new battery cover for every device I own. I'm notorious for breaking them or them breaking on thier own at the most inoportune times.Hope you found it ok.

    I had the same problem (damn thing slipped out of my hand). I removed the rails (4 torxs screws then then snap off), and buffed out the knicks. I painted with RUSTOLEUM BLACK TEXTURED paint. I get a better grip, and the knicks are gone.

    Where did you find a wrench for the screws??? Any good hardware store or do you have to go to a specialty store??? LOVE the idea... I want to do this to my 8700

    Excellent, it's well done painted.
    Which screws do you take out ? Is it the one underneath the battery ?

    The four screws are obvious once you take off the battery cover. They are T5 torx. I've got the T5 torx screwdriver in a kit that I bought years ago.


    - remove the battery cover
    - remove the 4 T5 torx screws
    - work your fingernail around the rail, it snaps off via 3 clips on each side
