I don't know where to put the screws on iPhone 5s

I was changing the display on IPhone 5s and accidentally mixed all screws up.

Does anyone have smth like a map/chart with sizes and samples?

I have absolutely no idea what to do, even logically its almost impossible to fit them.


So I still need to finish with these:

And I have couple questions:

What's the size of "?" screw on the second picture?

Only orange spot can ruin your phone?

Can I put random sizes in other spots, or all screws should fit properly?

so - here is what I have left (ye, I wish I could make photos in better quality).

Do you have any idea how to fit these screws in?

Cuz I can't find double 1.7 mm there, for example.

You will need a (digital) caliper and look at the iFixit guide to see which screws go where. Step 17 is for the screen assembly but you can look through the whole guide as well for the battery etc.

what if I just put no screw in the orange hole?


If you lost that screw, then just ignore it. Just don't put a longer screw in there!


can I contact you somehow to show couple photos? It will take 5 min, I just want to make sure I'm doing right, cuz new display works well, except I havent put any screws yet, and kinda afraid to ruin it.


Just post your photos by editing your original question. Then send me a quick comment so that I am notified when you have done so.


Ye, done, can you help with that, please?
