Introduction

In this guide we show you how to remove and replace a broken or defective display on your Huawei P10 Plus smartphone.

If the screen is broken you might want to protect your eyes from glass shreds and get a better grip to open the phone by applying some tape onto the screen.

If your replacement part does not come with adhesive mounted on it, you will also need to purchase new adhesive.

Use an iOpener to loosen the adhesive beneath the display, focusing on the upper and lower part of the display. Use an opening pick, or iFlex, to separate the adhesive on all sides of the display. To avoid damage to the display, do not push the tool too deeply into the phone.

There is a thin display cable between the screen and phone, be very careful not to rip it when opening the device. Place a suction cup, or iSclack, on the upper portion of the phone and lift the display off the midframe. Don't remove the display, the cable is trapped under a bracket screwed to the phone. You can flip the display to lay it down without straining the cable, or simply hold it in the next steps.
