The battery was glued in really firmly. I ended up pulling it out with a plier and had some smoke and sparks, luckily I had made sure to drain it completely prior to repair.

Hi there, I completed the battery replacement nicely with all your steps, the phone could turn on and function normally, the only issue after the battery replacement is the phone has no sound and vibration. I have ensure all connectors are back to place securely. Does anyone have any clue of the cause of no sound and no vibration?

Geschafft! Okay, ich war sehr vorsichtig und extrem überlegt. (2 Stunden) Wichtig ist ein Test vor dem verschließen. Bei mir funktionierte der Lautsprecher nicht. Stecker für selbigen war aufgesteckt hatte aber keinen Kontakt. Nochmaliges festdrücken und seit dem ist alles iO. Achtung der Akku ist extrem fest verklebt. Nur mit viel Geduld, Kraft und Wärme war es überhaupt möglich ihn zu lösen. Mit den noch vorhanden Kleberresten im Deckel wieder verschlossen. Hat alles Geklappt und Danke nochmal an diese Super Beschreibung.

Sehr gute Anleitung. Ist unter 30 Mminuten gut zu machen wenn nicht wie bei mir der Akku schon gebläht gewesen ist…Dadurch war es deutlich schwieriger den Akku raus zu bekommen - Huawei hat wirklich einen irren Kleber verwendet. Muss aber sagen das Stecker usw wesentlich besser flutschen als bei Iphones. Alles in allem finde ich das Mate 10 pro wirklich reparaturfreundlich. Danke nochmals an den Autor für die gute Anleitung?
