Replacing Housing and Glass, will Touch ID work?

Hey guys, I have a bent, shattered iPhone 5s. If I transfer the charging dock, motherboard, and old touch ID sensor into a new frame, will the touch ID still work?

I understand the ID sensor is married to the motherboard, so keeping these 3 parts original, will the Touch ID still work?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, the touch ID will work in theory.But if you have to replace the screen, you need to re-set the touch ID information such as record the fingerprint.
