Google Pixel Display Replacement

    • Turn off the device.

    • Prepare an iOpener to heat the edges of the display and soften the adhesive underneath. Alternatively, you may use a heat gun or a hair dryer.

    • The surfaces near the speaker and microphone (top and bottom respectively) have larger adhesive sections. These areas may require slightly longer heat exposure. The display should be heated until it's slightly too hot to touch, for roughly two minutes.

    • In the following steps, you will separate the display panel by slicing though the adhesive bonding the display to the Pixel's chassis.

    • For reference, the back of the display panel is shown at left. Note the narrow clearance between the side of the display unit and the OLED panel. (The bezels indicate this spacing on the front.)

    • Inserting an opening tool deeper than 1.5 mm into the sides of the device, or 9 mm into the top and bottom can permanently damage the display.

    • Use a suction handle to pull up on the display and create a slight gap between the display and the phone's chassis.

    • If your display is cracked, cover it with packing tape to help the suction cup adhere and prevent glass shards from popping loose.

    • You may need to apply more heat if this doesn't come up. Don't be impatient, this will take time. Once you can gently insert a tool in the gap, move on to the next step.

    • Insert an opening pick or a playing card into the gap between the chassis and the display assembly.

    • Begin to slide the opening pick around the edge of the display, cutting through the adhesive that secures it.

    • Do not try to lift or pry the screen off with the pick. Simply slide it around to detach the adhesive.

    • The display panel is extremely fragile. If you plan to re-use your display, take care to insert your tool only as far as necessary to separate the adhesive. Inserting the tool any further can damage the OLED panel under the glass.

    • Continue carefully separating the adhesive around the rest of the device.

    • Take extra care with the side bezels, which are only 1.5 mm deep.

    • With the adhesive cut, slowly lift the display up from the top (the side with the speaker-grille cutout), carefully flip it over vertically toward the bottom of the device, and rest it on its face, as shown.

    • Don't forget there's sticky adhesive everywhere, so consider resting an opening pick between the screen and display, to avoid spreading the gunk!

    • Do not attempt to completely remove the display yet, as it is still connected by a fragile ribbon cable. Be careful to not to strain the cable while positioning the display.

    • Use a T5 Torx driver to remove the two black 3.5 mm T5 screws securing the display cable connector bracket.

  6. Google Pixel Display Replacement: paso 8, imagen 1 de 1
    • Use tweezers to remove the bracket that holds the display connector in place.

    • This is just a piece of metal, and should come up very easily. (The cable is removed in the next step.)

    • Use a spudger to pry up the display cable connector, freeing the display.

    • On reassembly, gently snap one side in, then the other.

    • Do not force this type of connector into place, as damage can occur. (You will need to feel a light snap, but force beyond this will permanently damage your connector.)

    • Remove the display.

    • Some replacement displays do not come with an earpiece speaker grille. If your replacement screen doesn't have one, be sure to transfer the grille from your old display to the new one.

    • During reassembly, pause here to test the functionality of your new part and replace the display adhesive.


Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

hey, is the replacement screen meant to have adhesive on it already?

noisycrow - Contestar

No, it does not. Just replaced my screen. The residual adhesive is good enough to keep it on temporarily, but I’m going to a local repair shop to grab something better.

It’s also best to, if you haven’t already, look at your replacement part to get a feeling of how far you can go with the guitar pick or pry tool. It’s around 1/16th of an inch on the sides so you don’t want to go too far in and damage the display

Honestly, this felt easier than what the guide advised, definitely invest in the ifixit opening kit, made this a breeze. Hardest part was just scrapping the leftover residue off after removing the cracked screen.

You can use any adhesive for screen replacements for this screen. I personally used a double-sided tape 2 mm wide. The replacement screen does not usually come with the fabric covering the phone speakers, so make sure to transfer it from your old screen.
