How to change LCD on K-r


The LCD on my Pentax K-r is broken. As I have seen there are some dealers where I can sell such an LCD.

But before I buy that LCD, I wonder how to change it. So I begann to search for an instruction. I found a video at

But it is a k100d.

When I make that steps on the k-r I can open the top and I can open the bottom, but the back - where the lcd is - cannot be moved!

Has anybody opened a k-r. Where is the trick to remove the back of a k-r?

Thanks for all inputs.

I'd do a youtube search to see if there aren't any videos where someone does this- I believe the whole plastic shell will come off, so you can just replace the screen and put the back back on.

Thanks a lot for your idea. Unfortunately I havent found videos on youtube. On all videos I have found the back can be flapped after the top and bottom cover has been removed- but there is no video explicitely for the k-r or k-x. Maybe you are right and the whole plastic shell has to come off. Will try.
