Introduction

Use this guide to replace the loudspeaker and/or the vibration motor in your Huawei P10 Lite smartphone. When reassembling your phone apply new adhesive where it is necessary.

  1. Insert the tip of an opening pick between the back cover and the mid frame and slide it around the phone, to cut the adhesive. Using a suction handle to lift the back cover may help to get an initial gap for the opening pick to put in. If the adhesive is hard to cut, use an iOpener to loosen it.

    Had to use blue wedge tool to wedge open bottom plate from the rim part in order to then use the tip of the blue opening pick under the back plate to then cut the glue. It’s like placing a pie server or knife under the plate once there’s a gap between the rim and the back plate.

    Be careful, there’s a cable to fingerprint sensor, very close to the edge (see pictures below)… It’s very easy to cut it through with the pick, as I just learned :)

  2. After you cut the adhesive on every edge, twist your opening pick, to separate the rear cover from the phone. Flip the rear cover over to the right side of the phone. Flip the rear cover over to the right side of the phone.

    Schritt 3 und 4 kann man sich komplett sparen. Wozu auch. Kann gleich mit Schritt 5 weitergemacht werden, zuvor einfach das Flachbandkabel vom Fingerabdrucksensor an der Rückabdeckung abklemmen und fertig.

    There are four silver screws and two black to be removed.

    Step 3 and 4 can be completely ignored. What for? You can continue with step 5, just disconnect the ribbon cable from the fingerprint sensor on the back cover and you're done.

    However, the reason step 3 and 4 should not be skipped is Step 6 — Use an iOpener to loosen the adhesive beneath the battery. I.e., the adhesive cannot be easily removed without heat, however, that heat might damage the electric chips. Thus they’d better be removed first.

    Welchen Klebstoff soll man verwenden?

    Hallo Josef,

    sollte bei deinem Ersatzteil kein Klebstoff oder Klebeband dabei gewesen sein, kannst du dünne Streifen Doppelseitiges Klebeband verwenden. Es gibt für das Huawei P10 Lite auch schon zugeschnittene Klebestreifen zu erwerben, hierbei gilt aber je nach Händler Rezessionen zu lesen, ob die Klebestreifen auch wirklich halten.

    Note that there is a copper-colored sticker to lift up near the flat cable connected from the phone the finger pad. Lift the main board plate (shield) up SLOWLY from the camera side to the other end as the plate is wedged in place.

is it necessary to disconnect the finger print sensor flex cable in order to remove/replace the loudspeaker, or is just a precaution!?
