Introduction

I bought a kit to fix this component. The kit contained the headphone jack itself, a Phillips #00 Screwdriver and an Opening Tool.

I made do with just the above tools, but my instructions use the ideal tools should you have them.

I also replaced the rear camera at the same time, by following the excellent guide for that component.

Turn your phone off by holding the power button and selecting "Power Off." Turn it over onto its face and place it on your work area.

  • Use your Opening Tool or Opening Picks to remove the clips that bind the back cover to the phone.

    • Try not to lever near the buttons, ports or SIM card slots as the thinner plastic here is prone to cracking.

    • The clips at the top and bottom are smaller easier to open than the larger clips on the sides.

    • Opening Picks are not required, but help get through the adhesive if opening the phone for the first time.

  • Use a Phillips #00 Screwdriver to remove the 6 screws that hold down the midframe.

    • Place the screws somewhere safe, you will need all of them for the midframe to seat correctly.

  • Use a Spudger or Opening Tool to gently pry the midframe from the motherboard.

  • In the second image, the motherboard has been removed. This is NOT required as part of this guide.

  • Use a Spudger or Tweezers to pull the headphone jack upward and out of the phone.

    • The headphone jack is secured by the spring tension of its contacts to the motherboard.

    • It is also secured by adhesive below it.

  • Place the new headphone jack by orienting it like the old one and pressing it gently down into the phone.

    • It is a snug fit due to the tension of its sprung contacts.
