Replacement rear glass​?

As per the title, anyone know how easy the rear glass is to replace? The teardown shows the internals but not the glass panel on the rear... It's cracked right across my camera :(

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

you don't have to disassemble the phone to replace the glass panel. it's just glued down. Be careful around the touch id. The top side has a ribbon. It's easy other than that. Just heat it.

You have to gut the insides out so take it all out to replace the back housing.

If you want to do it yourself this video will help guide you.
