Introduction

Use this guide to replace the loudspeaker in your Huawei P9 smartphone.

  1. First switch off your phone and remove the SIM card tray. Unscrew the two Pentalobe P2 screws located at the bottom next to the device's USB C port. If the screen is cracked you might want to use some tape to protect your eyes from glass shreds and get a better grip to open the phone.

  2. Use an iSclack or a suction handle to separate the display unit from the rear panel. Don't remove the rear panel completely yet. There is a cable connected to it! It is running from the finger print sensor to the display unit.

    If you cant get suction because of cracks in the screen, use wide tape to create smooth surface.

    If your screen is smashed, and nothing else will work (iSclack etc), you can get a thin blade between the casing and the screen assembly and the bottom. The screen assembly can then be pried out. I fought with mine before discovering this. Be careful of the broken glass.

    I struggled to remove screen with suction cups due to damage to the back case. I used a jim to pry from bottom by usb c port, worked well.

    Be very carrefull as it can open in one fell swoop !

    On my model, I had 2 Little torx screws beside the USB port. If so, the screen won’t come out with them on.

    Interesting, sure those were 6-starred (Torx) and not 5-starred (Pentalobe) like mentioned in step 1?

    Are there any tips to help loosen the screen after taking the screws out? I brought in an extra person to help with the suction cup whilst I tried to pry the screen away with it still only moving at most 1mm (maybe less) and not enough to get any pry tools in. Ending up using quite a lot of force - far more than I think I should be to no success. As it stands I’m just ending up doing minor damage to the base of the screen/case.

    Hey A Birch,

    just for the case, I mention — it’s important to pull out the SIM card tray, otherwise, it will block the opening procedure and you’ll damage your phone. In case the frame is damaged or bent you’ll need more force to open the phone. In general, the opening procedure should be fairly easy.

Attention, pour un P9 plus, il 4 vis à enlever à l’étape 4 dont 1 est cachée sur un point de peinture. On ne peut pas retirer le cache métallique si on ne l’enlève pas (sa forme est différente de la photo).

Il faut avoir de bons yeux (ce qui n’est pas mon cas) car pour remettre certaines vis ou connecteurs (l’antenne notamment), c’est chaud !

J’ajouterai que pour l’étape 2, j’ai bien galéré aussi, ça a eu du mal à venir !
