Sometimes you need to look at what is easier to replace moving all of the little parts over or just moving the two larger parts.

In this case it might be wise just swapping out the logic board and the display over.

If the parts have the same model number yes. If they dont I wouldn't risk it but if you want to give it a shot its worth a shot
