Replacing Back Lens and Diffuser

First off, I'd like to say taking it to a repair shop or Apple is out of the question.

I've performed a back replacement and need to change the top part glass which has the lens and diffuser.

I bought a replacement but the replacement came with the holes cut only. I can purchase the lens and diffuser themselves, but how would I attach them together? A bit of super glue?

If anyone knows where i can get the top back piece (black) with the lens and diffuser IN THE UK, please link!

Is this a good question?

Hi there yes a tiny bit of glue will hold the lens diffuser done this a few times myself when you glue it leave it 30 minutes to air out as the vapour can mark the lens

Thank you. Will just add a dab of super glue then.

Ill probably get a bit of dust on the lens when i let it air out, any way to easily clean it out?

Would selotape work?


Just a wee wipe with a microfibre cloth or a hair dryer will blow the dust away


Great. Thanks for the help!
