    Well, I just fixed my charger cover! It litterally took less than 5 minutes and the new one fits snug and has a strong seal. It cost less than $5 for the part from Amazon and I took a pic of the left over broken part of the charger cover along with the included screwdriver (which I already had one and it is a size 00 (which you might be able to see inscribed on the 2nd pic) and it included an extra screw (which looked shorter than the OEM screw, so I just kept the OEM screw in there and it included the little plastic piece but again, I used the OEM one. So all done!

    By the way...a local repair shop tried telling me it would cost $180 to fix this issue!!! They insisted that the whole back cover and screen needed to be replaced. When I tried explaining this simple fix the girl was really rude and woudn't listen. Worse, the manager got on the phone and yelled at me saying "...then go have it fixed somewhere else!" and then she hung up on me. I called two other repair shops (just to make sure I was going about this right) and they knew exactly how to fix this and said it would cost $15 which included them doing all the work. I chose to do it myself and it truly was easy, fast and simple! Anyone can do it...just watch the youtube video. Needless to say, I won't ever be using that local repair shop. The arrogance some people have when you try to point out the correct way of doing something. They wouldn't listen.

    It's worth pointing out that fixing this issue is easier than posting on this forum. I can't figure out how to attach picsfrom my S5 and having to attach the pics from my PC is such a pain b/c AndroidCentral has SO many popups, ads, etc. that the pages takes forever to load. What a pain to help out others in a forum. Taking my phone apart is easier!

    Here are the parts and my two screwdrivers are the two silver attachments but the kit I bought came with one also...

    This pic shows the size of the screwdriver, I have two but the one that fits is 00 (although I think the 0 would also work)...

    How about you tell us which repair shop treated you like this so we can all give them 1 star reviews

    Yeah, I had mine for over a year & then snap... it broke. I was never hard on it either.

    My wife's had hers for over a year & hers is fine for now but I ordered an extra replacement for WHEN (not if) it breaks.

    Mine broke after 2 weeks, they tried to say I dropped it but I had it in an Otter box. It was already bent when I got the new phone.

    I ordered the part from Amazon. It looks like a piece of cake to replace, but I've gotten used to living without it, so the S5 has been without it for 6 months now. I know it's no longer waterproof but I've been worried about dust or debris getting into the open port. So far so good. Any opinions out there? Thanks.

    I understand the newer ones don't have it along with a lot of others.

    I had my daughter order my through Amazon Prime with no shipping
    cost for $6.99. It came with 3 covers, 2 of the plastic covers the screw goes through,
    2 screws, a screwdriver and a cleaning cloth. Now that is a bargain.(Mudder brand)

    It was a breeze to install and I'm over 75 and have the old man tremors.
    The hardest part was getting the little screw out once it was loose. A
    pair of tweezers would have helped.
