Go to Apple iPad Repair and select the category for your iPad model. There should be a "Front Panel Assembly" replacement guide that gives step by step instructions on how to replace the front panel which includes the glass and digitizer. Because of the adhesive on the front panel, you will have to have an iOpener or a Heat Gun.
