    These questions are both regarding a 1G ipod touch.

    1. My ipod's front panel is cracked, but not the screen itself. Everything else works just fine.
    - How difficult is it to replace the front panel, and about how much will the part cost to replace? Please include the cost of the tools needed as well.

    2. My sister's ipod got completely soaked (by a toilet I believe) about a year ago. After that incident, the only problem with the ipod is that the backlight does not work, but you can still see the screen if you hold it up to a light, kind of like an old gameboy.
    - Is there any hope of bringing the backlight back, or will it have to be replaced? And if so, how much will the part cost?

    I'm NOT going to send them into apple. They've been out of warranty for a while now.
