Introduction

The glass layer is important to clarity and protection of the LCD screen. However, accidents can cause the screen to crack which harms the viewing experience. This replacement is extremely difficult and requires attentive care and knowing your way around the tools. The tools required are the plastic opening tool, heat gun, and a Phillips #0 screwdriver.

  1. Using the iFixit opening tools, carefully pry up the trim around the screen. It is recommended to start in a corner.

to remove the black cover, use the rod of a pen pen cap. Spread both sides while pressing the top of the black cover (towards the inside of the screen). Must a little force.The closure mechanism is composed of two things that alternate every 2 cm: 1 clips that is sinking on the gray part (you have to lift the black part towards the right to take it out) then 1 rod that comes down in underneath (just stand aside - neither lift nor lower to remove)
