How to place the Front Panel Replacement correctly

I've succesfully take apart the front panel assembly but I can't place the new one correctly. The top of the screen, which is near the front camera, it is not well attached. It takes off and cannot find a a way to insert it . I guess the problem is this piece of metal http://www.skymac.com.ar/ipodtouch.jpg

Are there some tips to keep in mind?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The guides available only show the procedure to open and remove the parts do not indicate how to put the new one, and not always reassembling the device is in reverse order.

In this case, the touchscreen flex was the problem, it was folded up against the metal plate where the LCD is inserted, preventing this to be correctly seated. The cable must be placed so carefully folded so that it is right beside the front camera.

The pictures are not good just like my poor english. Somebody could put this tip in the correct guide to help others.

Thank you

macpatagon, I am not sure which iPod you have but based on the picture you attached it is an iPod touch. My best advice to you would be to study the manuals on here and see what you get. These instructions are proven and do work. As always, study the material and take a good luck at what you got. Have a clean and uncluttered work area and take your time when you do it. Good Luck
