1) You have to clean the display bezel from old adhesive or glass.

2) if you bezel is damaged buy a new one: iPad 2/3/4 Display Bezel

3) Use iPad 3rd Gen Adhesive Strips to paste the glass iPad 3/4 Adhesive Strips

ok thanks, I´ve have already bought a new Adhesive, and the bezel it´s okay i think is not necesary to buy a new one.

I clean de bezel.. but perhaps still having waste of the old glue. should I use some cleaner like alcohol or something?

and... when i use the new adhesive, Is is necesary to use heat gun?

Thanks for responding!


Please use only heat to clean the bezel and no heat to paste the glass.


ok thank you very mcuh.. when the adhesive arrives i will try this way..

thanks and regards,

The iPad Retina Adhesive Stripes will help secure the iPad glass touch screen digitizer to the chassis.

However, to properly affix the screen's frame you will need the iPad Adhesive Strips for the Screen Frame which is the same for the iPad 3rd-Gen and the iPad 4th-Gen.

I have the same problem. I have added new iFixIt strips, cleaned the bezel (not damaged), and tried the "red tape" approach. It sticks until the heat of the battery charge/discharge warms things up. Then the screen starts releasing starting along the edge between the home button and the corner where the ribbon attaches. I have tried clamping the screen with spring clamps. It sticks until it gets a little warm from use. What is the factory doing that we aren't??
