How to Remove & Replace PS5 Console Cover – Quick & Easy Guide

If you’re the proud owner of a new PS5 console cover, here’s how to remove your old faceplate and replace it with a beautiful new color.

Sony is giving its fans a lot more options when it comes to console customization with the PS5. Not only do we have the choice of a Digital or Disc PS5 this time around, but the console’s faceplates are completely removable.

Right after the PS5 launch, we saw third-party sellers offering Black, Blue, or Red PS5 faceplates. Finally, we could get the jet-black PS5 we had always wanted.

Black, Pink, Blue, Purple, Red PS5 Console Covers

But Sony was quick to takedown PS5 faceplate sellers. And now we know why.

Now, gamers can buy an official PS5 console cover in Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, or Galactic Purple. And thankfully, it’s not hard to remove and replace your existing PS5 console cover.

How to Swap PS5 Faceplates – Console Cover Replacement Guide

If you’re looking to swap out your existing PS5 faceplates (AKA console covers), here’s how to quickly and easily replace the hardware.

  • First, lie the PS5 down flat, with the logo console cover facing up.
  • Take the corner with the logo and pull up gently.
  • While the cover is slightly raised, push the entire cover down towards the opposite corner of the device.
  • The cover will come away without too much effort.
  • Then, flip over the PS5.
  • This time, grab and lift the top, back corner of the PS5 before sliding the whole faceplate down once again.
  • To add your shiny new PS5 console cover, simply line up the faceplate with the bottom of the console.
  • Then, slide the console cover up the PS5 and you should feel the new cover click firmly into place.
  • Finally, turn the device over and repeat the final step.

Voila! You’ve successfully managed to remove, replace, and swap your PS5 console cover. Enjoy your console’s new color!

Right now, Sony isn’t selling specific PS5 colors, opting to have console covers as an optional extra. Thankfully, it’s far easier to get hold of a colorful DualSense controller!

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a console itself, here’s everything we know about new PS5 restocks coming soon.
