Default Change housing XS

Hello,
I want to change the housing of my Sony Xperia S.
I mean the backcover, all buttons, the usb and HDMI cap, the frame.
I searched and found out that the frame is a unity with the display.
I was going to buy this set but i am not sure how to change the frame and remove the display.
I watched some how to in youtube but they did not change the frame.
Did some one change the housing of Xperia S and can tell me how to do it?
I have no warranty and i do not want to buy new display just for the new frame.

Try parts4repair.com. if I remember correctly they did have the frame on its own.

You will need a heat gun to take the existing display off, and you gotta be really careful. Hence it might just be easier to buy the whole thing especially if you haven't got any experience in handling phone disassemblies
