Introduction

In this guide we will be showing you how to replace the front panel in your GoPro Hero4 Silver. Before you begin make sure the battery is removed from the device and that you have the necessary tools to preform this repair.

Start by removing the silver plastic face from the camera using a plastic opening tool. Insert the plastic opening tool into the middle of each edge and lift up the tabs that keep the camera face on. The seven plastic tab locations are marked in red. Try using the plastic opening tool before switching to the metal spudger. We tried using the plastic opening tool to pry the camera face off, but found that it did not give us enough leverage.

  • There may be glue holding the camera face on to the housing. Be careful not to flex the camera face too much, or it will crack.

First step should be make sure you remove memory card first. I accidentally left mine and broke it trying to remove the assembly from the case.
