This Garmin had a cracked front glass/digitizer. Due to cost effectiveness I replaced the complete front panel. Replacement cost $20.

  • Use a plastic opening tool to start splitting the front and back case.

  • Work your way around the separation line, gently applying continous pressure to the back case.

  • Once the front and back case are split, do not yet totally remove it. The LCD is still attached via a ribbon cable.

  • The ribbon cable and connector are covered with a strip of Kapton tape

  • Remove the tape. Use the plastic opening tool, or any other appropriate tool (i.e. guitar pick, fingernails etc), to remove the tape.

  • Once the tape is removed, flip the white clasp open, by moving it away from the cable end, disconnect the LCD.

  • Remove the On/Off switch

  • Remove the complete front assembly.

  • The LCD assembly is held in the front bezel by seven plastic tabs.

  • Move those tabs slightly back while applying pressure from the opposite side (front of the LCD)

  • Continue to push the tabs on the bezel away from the LCD assembly, pushing the LCD away from the bezel

  • Ensure that the LCD assembly clears all the tabs.

  • Remove the LCD from the front bezel

  • Totally separate the assembly from the bezel. Now it is time to replace it with a new assembly.
