    Check ebay but you will still need to check repair prices.

    The repair isnt that bad. iFixIt has a great guide.
    It's only impossible if you quit.

    i always pick my parts up from ubreakifix, because they're really helpful and reasonably priced and only 20 mins away from me. But they have a ebay store if that helps

    It takes experience to replace the housing. There are a few threads on the thread concerning housing swaps. I do them all the time so if you need help or just don't want to do it yourself let me know.

    I believe there are three screws on one side, two of which are under tape. Two screws on the other side. There is one screw in the top corner. Then I like to slide my fingernail between the rails on on side then the other to pop the screen loose. Then just lift the bottom of the LCD up a little and slide it down and out. I'm no pro but I've done it a few times.
