Repairing DS top & bottom screens?

Can anybody help.

Having given a nintendo ds lite to our daughter it has been sttuck to her ever since.
Unfortunately, we had an accident. My wife ran over it. Luckily it was in a protective case and everything works except both upper & lower screens have dark blotches.

Im guessing this is the liquid crystal display cracked.

On ebay etc I can see I can buy two screens for around £ 20.00

First question - is this a complete screen they're selling as some of the sites don't explain very well or they give the impression that they are selling the touch screen. Is this the complete screen or just what sits on top of the liquid crystal display.

2nd question - Is this relatively easy to do?

Just trying to reduce the cost of repairing

It will be complete.

It is relativley easy to swap screens over.

You will need a special screwdriver to open the case, these are called Tri-Wing.
