Screen corner separated from frame

So my Xperia Z3 is just over 2 years old now and I have noticed that the top left-hand corner of the screen has separated from the frame.

Is there any way to temporarily fix it without ruining repairablility in the future?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Why not just use sticky tape to keep it together? if it's transparent enough, it might even not trigger the proximity sensor.

In any case, it will avoid more dust getting in which will progressively stick to the glue holding the screen to the frame, separating the screen more and more.

The repair will mean changing the glue between the screen and frame, which means following most of the screen replacement guide.

Thanks for the advice, Axel, but I had already tryed that and, due to the case on my phone being very tight, the tape just ripped straight off.

My main concern with the corner lifting was when I remove the phone from it's case, the gap opens up to around a centimetre.

I generally use B7000 Liquid glue to restick the glass back to the frame as a quick and easy solution

Don't put too much and don't put too little, if you put too much you risk covering the proximity sensor, front camera on accident.

Once you have it applied, apply pressure then use sticky tape to let the glue set in between with pressure then take out the tape after 24 hours.

Rub off the excess glue if needed after that.
