If you are loving the water resistance on the Samsung Galaxy S5 like I am, it can be a real deal breaker when the Samsung Galaxy S5 charging port cover is broken and needs to be replaced.

I am sure that you have seen plenty of S5’s with the charge port cover missing, but don’t worry we will show you how to replace the charge cover with a new one in a few minutes.

4. A tape like material will hold the flap in place, use a pair of tweezers or something with a fine point to clip the compartment off.

5. The remains of the Galaxy S5 USB cover flop should be in this small compartment, or if you are just removing it simply remove the plastic clip and out it will come.
