My S50's been working great for almost 3 years now despite all the program patches and updates I had to run it through. The only thing that I would like to fix on it is to "refresh" it with a new body because I noticed that the front face is starting to crack at two places starting from the edge. The control button symbols on the sides are also starting to wear off.
Can I buy a "dead" unit from an auction site and just replace the case on the radio? I guess my real question is, is it easy enough to do and has anyone here done it before that could give me tips or a step by step guide on disassembling and reassembling the radio. I could also just maybe change the front lens portion (I had it off at one time for cleaning out some dust in the display area) but It would really be nice to freshen up the whole case back and front and the buttons. Please advise....

That front face plate just snaps on. I have a dead one in my lap right now and will try to take some pics as I rip it apart.
