Use this guide to remove or replace the rear camera assembly in your Google Pixel 6 Pro.

For your safety, discharge the battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

  1. Apply a  heated iOpener  to the screen to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 3 minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the device.

  2. Once the screen is warm to the touch, apply a suction handle to the bottom edge of the screen. If your screen is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction handle to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction handle. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction handle to the screen. Lift the screen including its safety frame with the suction handle to create a small gap between the screen and the phone assembly.
