Can you Replace Ipad 3 front glass reusing old digitizer

Hello, I accidentally bought only replacement glass for ipad 3 that is without digitizer attached.

could you suggest tutorial that show how to replace only outer screen? I have seen many that replace glass with digitizer combo but none that show how to replace screen only.

this is one I bought

please don't post answers saying to not buy from ebay or to just get one with digitizer, those would not be much help.

Thanks in advance.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The glass and digitizer are the same item. On the iPad 3 the glass/digitizer and LCD are two different items. If you can see an image then the LCD is good no need to replace it.

Take a look at this link for instructions. iPad 3 Wi-Fi Front Panel Replacement

hello, thanks for reply.

I thought that as well, but it turns out they sell Glass part only as well. I'm not talking about LCD.

Front panel consists of 2 things

1. The normal glass in front with front panel cutout

2. Touch digitizer that detects the touch controls, and this has cable as well.

so this two things glued together make up front panel and normally are sold together. but i guess as part of advanced repair they are also sold separately.

at least this is what I pieced together. and I'm looking for those instructions.

You nee to purchase the combined touchscreen/glass digitiser as they are bonded together. You will need to buy the correct part. People selling the glass only are trying to rip you off.
