Introduction

This guide will teach you how to replace the motherboard in your Moto G, in the event that it is malfunctioning. It may take a while, since the battery and SD/SIM card reader must be removed first, but all you will need are a T5 Torx screwdriver and a plastic opening tool.

Make sure your Moto G is turned off before beginning disassembly. Starting at the USB port on the bottom, remove the rear cover by prying it off with your finger. Work your way down the sides to avoid cracking the rear cover.

There's no need to remove the battery or motherboard to get to the speakers - they are accessible as soon as the back cover is removed. Skip this step and jump straight to step 10

Deck the Halls
With tools and Fix Kits
Using a plastic opening tool, carefully pry off the entire SIM/SD card reader component. Don't worry about ripping the copper foil a little bit, it is easy to put back on. When reassembling the device, do not attempt to smooth the foil down with your finger. Metal foil can become sharp if folded in a certain way, and you may be cut.
