How To Replace The Galaxy S5 Charge Port Cover Flap


In the video above I show you step by step how to replace that little flap that covers your Galaxy S5 charge port. This seems to be a pretty common problem where after a while of use the rubber hinge that holds the flap onto the device becomes weak and the flap falls off. This can even happen with minimal use which can be pretty frustrating. Of course some of you were probably happy when the flap fell off since it can also tend to get in the way.

If you are preparing to sell your Galaxy S5 to get ready for the Galaxy S6 you will want to replace this piece. Try selling the your S5 without the flap. You might be surprised to know that the missing flap can drastically reduce the value of your phone since it provides part of the gasket which makes the Galaxy S5 super water resistant. The process will take you less than 5 minutes, and the part and screwdriver will cost you less than $5. This repair is well worth it!
