      Hi,Nelly, replacing only the front screen glass is possible, however which needs very professional skills, actually we reommend you to replace the complete screen assembly if you plan to replace it yourself. and sorry to say that the screen replacement is not available in our site right now, you can search on other site to see if you can get one.

      if you plan to fix it yourself, you’d better replace the complete screen assembly, replacing only the outer glass lens needs very professional skills and machines.
