Heat Gun vs. Hairdryer

Hey guys,

I wanted to ask if it's possible to soften the glue with a hairdryer (2100W)?

Do you guys think it's gonna work?

Thanks in advance and best wishes,



A hair dryer works just fine. Keep heating it until you can't touch it anymore, if you have one you can use a suction cup which will make lifting the display way easier.

Thanks everyone, my girlfriend will definitely enjoy it :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

In short yes, it will work.

A heatgun will produce more heat than a hairdryer but the hairdryer will work just will take longer.

Hope this answeres your question!

Thank you for your fast response Cameron :) *thumbs up*

So if the glue hasn't softened yet, just keep going right?

Again thank you very much :)


Yes. Do it until the glass is just too hot to touch


Cam, it could work, especially if it is a high wattage dryer. A link to the guide might be helpful.


@mayer ok and for the guide. you mean on how to replace the screen? I didnt add it as that wasnt really the question and this guy seems to know what he is doing.
