Introduction

This guide explains how to remove the screen of the Asus ROG Strix GL702VM-BHI7N09 for replacement. This replacement involves numerous screws and snap seals that add to the time it takes to replace; however, it is not a very difficult replacement.

  2. The snap seals don't need a lot of pressure to open, and may break if forced. Be gentle with the opening tool.

    • Wedge the sharp edge of the plastic opening tool into the seam between the back panel and the rest of the laptop, then gently pry the panel up.

      • There will be a snapping sound as you remove the back panel, but that is just the seal loosening.

    • Continue breaking the seals by sliding the plastic opening tool around the entire laptop under the seam until the back panel is free.

    • Once you have broken all the seals, carefully lift the panel off.

    • When lifting, be sure to not strain the wires on the left side of the photo, as that could lead to a malfunction in the wires.

      • Simultaneously lift and turn over the screen.

      • The purpose of this step is to expose the connection from the wires to the screen.

Hey there, thank you for the great guide. My computer fell off a desk and has a very minor signature on the screen- specifically, the top left hand corner/left side of screen is *slightly* lighter than the original coloring / rest of the screen. It doesnt impede use of the laptop at all, but frankly I’d prefer to repair the laptop since it was a big investment.

I’m concerned that maybe the fall damaged the corners or snap seals- if they were damaged, could they cause a distortion on the screen? if if I replaced the screen, would that solve the problem? IF anyone had any ideas, id appreciate!!

This excellent guide also works for the Model GL502V. A few very minor differences and my own personal high-tech sticky-tack seal solution. Ifixit FTW!
