Where is the guide to repair the earpiece/sensor part on iPhone?


In the guides for iPhone I didn't see how to put in part the earpiece/sensor..

I never put anything in part without a guide, mainly when it's not with screws...

Please some help ;)

EDIT : I also would like to have a big big macro of the FPC connector in the logic board (for the ribbon 3).. because I cannot know how to put back the black tab to lock the ribbon (that jumped out... but I still get it).

Or a scheme of this FPC connector

Why should there be an extra guide ?

if you look at the front panel assembly guide (step 7) - the earpiece almost jumps out on its own.

i don't use or recommend instructables, it's a pay site and not even a good one

as for the connector problem, look at the large/huge pictures in the gude - if thats not enough - use the picture i uploaded - on this picture - it's in closed position

CLICK for a HUGE picture

if thats still not enough, search youtube - there are plenty of videos showing the ribbon 3 and how it should be placed in the connector
