Introduction

If your Huawei P8 Lite won't hold a charge you can use this guide to replace the worn-out battery without removing the complete motherboard.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. The battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured, but the chances of that happening are much lower if discharged.

    • There are clips around the whole mid frame, holding down the back cover. Open all of them with the Opening Tool.

    • When all clips are open, remove the back cover from the rest of the phone.

    • If the back cover doesn't come freely, there are probably some additional clips that need to be disconnected.

    • Use a tweezer to loosen the adhesive strip and lift it up to give you an easy grip.

    • Gently pull out the adhesive strip. Don't pull it in a steep but in a flat angle and with caution. It can tear in two pieces easily.

    • If your phone is equipped with an NFC antenna continue with the next step to get it off. Skip the next step if it does not have an NFC antenna.

    • Use a Spudger to carefully start to pry out your battery.

    • Undo the adhesive beneath the battery with the Spudger.

    • The easiest way to do so is by moving the Spudger in small movements like a lever.

    • Remove the battery.

    • If you reinstalled the metal motherboard shield to protect the motherboard while prying, you will have to remove it to connect your new battery.

    • When reassembling your phone replace old adhesive with double-sided tape or pre-cut adhesive strips.

One thing to be careful of that I just did, and screwed up my nieces phone.

You see that black square hole in the aluminium chassis under the battery? Yeah be very very careful when sticking your prying tool under the battery. The LCD us right behind it. Try and stay very far away from those holes in the chassis when you do your prying.

Her screen now has Horizontal and vertical lines right across the centre of the screen.

Sigh.
