Adhesive on front and back of battery

When I placed on the new adhesive strips, I accidentally installed them such that the tips of the strips are on the front side of the battery and some of the adhesive is on that front side. Is that going to cause problems? Do I need to remove and place new strips on?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Most likely! You don't want the battery glued to the back of the LCD. It will cause issues over time. You should be able to roll any excess adhesive off with your fingers so that you dont risk damaging the battery with any tools.

Thanks Andre! Unfortunately, the end that goes onto the front is the end with the tabs used to remove it, so I would have to remove those tabs. Will that cause problems? I'm guessing it will make it nearly impossible to remove the battery next time it needs to be replaced. Any advice?
