  • Caution: Pull directly up, not out, on the connection

Be extra careful when prying this connection! The safer route would actually be to skip this step and proceed with the rest of the instructions. After removing the speaker use a piece of regular tape to attach it to the logic board to keep both parts together.

LOL. Who rated this as a difficult repair? Seriously? T5 screws too much for you? The only issue with the repair for this device is the adhesive between the digi and frame is a REAL pain to remove, and the plastic frame is likely to melt if you use too much/high heat. Otherwise, it's very simple. Just be careful when installing the new digi, as the motherboard needs to be slightly lifted to feed the connector.

Thanks for the instructions!

Is there a part 2 for this guide? The instructions is incomplete and doesn't not include steps to actually remove the digitizer.
