I was going crazy being stuck in the house so I decided to go out anyway. The roads were not bad at all. I got the last piece of the puzzle....the keyboard.
Oh and I also got an allan wrench set to replace the faceplate on my aquaero 6 xt. I don't know tools but it was an assortment pack that I got from Home Depot. The clearance price was 3 bucks. It was the smallest of the set...it was numbered 2(whatever that means)
Anyway, I quickly removed the screws holding in the faceplate. The brackets fell off easily. and all I had to do was carefully pull off the faceplate assembly/touchscreen part from the body of the aquaero. They were connected with pins....whatever they're called.
And all I did was carefully slide a razor blade between the faceplate and the touchscreen part....just little by little all the way around and poof...it easily separated. There was enough adhesive that I didn't have to use double sided tape like someone suggested to me.
Also, if you're afraid to remove the silver faceplate, you may be able to just take the screws out, put the black faceplate on top, and screw it on.....the screws seem to be long enough.
