Most LG phones you open from the back..there is no guide for your phone on ifixit and I can't find anyone posting anything on other sites. Remove battery/battery cover.. there are usually 6 philips head screws securing rear panel to motherboard. Once screws are removed you can use fingernail, spudger or card to ease between rear cover and motherboard. Always go easy to avoid ripping ribbons between motherboard and covers, If the cover won't lift check for hidden screws under stickers or button covers. Don't force anything. Ribbon cables tend to be push on, not slide and lock and most likely you'll have camera/speaker/digitiser/LCD flex ribbons. LCD and digitiser are more than likely stuck to front frame with adhesive that will release with pressure or heat. You'll need to remove all adhesive to get a good finish, also new adhesive for securing screens.

These are similar looking to your phone and as most companies don't change things too much they may be able to give you some good ideas on how to get into your phone. Good luck.

there are no screws underneath any stickers. you can remove the back plastic cover and access the motherboard by just removing the 6 screws. also, there are no ribbon cables attached to the back plastic cover. removing the cover can be tricky because it can first seem as though it is attached underneath by hidden screws. i repeat, there are only 6 screws in the back you need to remove to remove the back plastic cover that is underneath the back lid. this assumes you removed the back lid, then battery, then, sim card, then sdcard. the only thing in your way should be the 6 screws. i had to wedge the back plastic cover out with very tiny screwdriver. you can use a knife if you wanted. go along the edges and slowy poke the knife inbetween then lift and pry the cover out. it has notches on each corner (4 notches) and a few notches along the long side of the phone. (both sides).
