Title:

I Need Some Assurance Before I Start Repair!

Text:

Before I start with my display assembly repair for my 5th Generation 32GB iPod touch (blue), I need a bit more answers so that I am more confident of repairing. So here's some information I need:
 
1. How do I replace the adhesive when reassembling the iPod. The guide on ifixit.com says that I have to heat up the iPod before I remove the display assembly, and this just has been in my mind. Will I have to reheat the adhesive right before I secure the display back, or do I apply a new adhesive?
 
2. How do I reinstall the plastic retaining clips that are surrounding the glass edge? The plastic clips are what is bothering me and I need some answers before repairing, so that I don't have to delay my repair.
 
Please help me! I have been googling and asking on forums but no one has the enough expertise to answer my question. I know that the ifixit community is more helpful.
 
If you need more information about my iPod touch, please email me at ko.ocean71@gmail.comme. I will send pictures about the status of damage upon request. Thanks!
