    So someone posted a link to a trusted Dutch site who sells the grey casing and I'm tempted to buy it :) The only problem is that there are no disassembly videos or instructions online to be found. The only thing I found was the service manual: Nokia lumia 920 service manual L 1+2 - xda-developers

    Taking the 920 a part seems like an easy job, but the problem with what the service manual mentions is that in a couple of steps, where you have to take some tape and support of, it clearly mentions that they are not reusable afterwards. So, my question is.... is it only possible to change the casing if you have access to all the extra materials or is this just mentioned because it's a service manual for resellers and that they aren't allowed to reuse those materials?

    Just take it to a nokia care facility and say "hey, swap case for me?" and see what they charge. Should keep your warranty as well if they do it, perhaps.

    Just be careful. I did the same on my L900 and while I did it all flawlessly the phone never felt quite right again... There were creaks.

    That sounds like a good idea yeah :) It's best I ask them first before buying the casing as the phone isn't sold yet in my country, so they might not have spare parts available.

    I can imagine what you mean! Where there also creaks when you put the original case back on or just on the new one? Mine already creaks from three sides when it gets hot, so I can't imagine it getting worse :D

    I was hoping for €20 less too... but it's pretty new still of course :) They only ship to The Netherlands and Belgium.

    Let me know if you do this yourself or what Nokia or anyone else would charge to do this.

    I just found this video of a disassembly: Guide to disassembling and re-assembling a Nokia Lumia 920 | WMPoweruser

    It looks pretty doable :) Now I just have to decide if I want to risk it! I will keep you posted.

    I changed my case to gray, it was pretty easy using the video posted above and the service manual. If you order a gray case, you might want to order the grey sim card holder as well;-) It was not included with my case. I did use a hair dryer to soften the glue and used new double-sided adhesive tape.
    It looks nice and I would do it again.
