Purpose: The Nokia N95 slider is somewhat wobbly, at least on some devices. This guide explains how you can open up the phone to sort the wobble. The guide is based on Biggzy’s guide, published at HowardForums, big thanks to him!
What you need:
Electrical sticky tape
DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! I found this great video guide, unfortunatly it’s in italian(?).
Here’s a video guide:
Turn off the phone. Remove battery cover and battery.Pull the back cover off by easing it out away from the slide like the image to the right.
Then remove the backcover from the phone.
At each side of the N95 you will see 2 black metal strips (one on each side) held in place by 3 silver screws. Here’s the picture of the black metal strip and the screws.
Undo the 3 screws from one side and keep them safe (do 1 side at a time, its easier) and remove the black metal runner.
Put the metal strip on a surface face down so the lip is pointing upwards, get your electrical tape (Biggzy used blue tape so you can see it) and cut a thin strip and place it on the black metal runner under the lip like this.
Do this with each black runner so your slide will be tight once its back together. Once you have done the first side, take the second black runner from side 2 and do the same. You’ll notice one black runner is smaller than the other, don’t mix them up when you put them back onto the N95.
Now it’s time to put the runners back. You may have to force them into place.As you put the runners back on you will notice that the runners are pushing the white plastic runners down onto the slide, this is how it makes the slide nice and tight.Screw the runners down tight and pop the back cover back on. Start with button side first like this.
