Second time is much easier

by jonesj

My Problem

My daughter dropped her ipad and cracked the screen? My older daughter the same thing 6 months ago:(

My Fix

This is my second time doing this exact repair and it is much easier the second time. Using heat is the key! I would also recommend that if you are replacing the front panel bezel to just cut the flex cable and then remove the piece at the connector in a later step. This prevent stress on the connector.

My Advice

Two things... 1) whenever ordering a front bezel you should recommend the sealing tape. I forgot to order it this time and it is delaying the finishing touches. 2) a WARNING should be in the instructions on the for the WI-FI cable. The first time around I tore the cable. This time I took more time and focused on the cable.
