Hi Felix. That's because it requires micro-soldering.

Micro-soldering flexes is tricky because you can easily melt the flex so this is really beyond what a DIY fixer should handle. If you have the tools and skills to do this kind of work, then you don't really need an iFixit guide ;>).

Look for an experienced micro-solderer in our area.

Thank's! I found this out, currently trying to learn defiantly not ready haha. What's the best way to go about learning how to micro solder?


There are lots of great videos on Youtube. Ultimately, ill need a good quality temperature controlled soldering iron and hot air station, flux and good tweezers and go from there.
