Do I have to replace the screen glass to replace the digitizer?

I need to replace the digitizer on my phone. After taking apart the phone and getting to the inside of the digitizer, I noticed that it doesn't come out from the inside. I don't want to push the digitizer from the inside of the screen towards the top of the phone because I think i will break the glass. Do I have to remove the glass in order to remove the digitizer?

Hi @josevelazquez ,

This is from the ifixit OnePlus 5 Teardown guide

" The display and glass are fused and the home button is integrated into the display assembly making repair of all three of these parts more complicated and expensive. "

Here is a link to the ifixit OnePlus 5 LCD Screen Replacement guide (which you probably don't need).

It may be safer to get a OnePlus5 LCD screen / digitizer part. There are suppliers online.
