    • Insert a SIM card ejection tool into the SIM card slot located on the left edge of the phone.

    • Press in with the tool of your choice until it pops out of the side of the phone.

    • Starting at the SIM card slot, stick the plastic opening tool in between the back panel and the phone.

    • Slide the opener tool gently around the phone until you hear clicks and visibly see the panel separate from the body of the phone.

    • Continue this process on each edge of the phone, until the only thing holding the back panel to the body of the phone is the fingerprint scanner.

    • Gently detach the back panel from the finger print scanner on the back of the phone.

    • Use a Phillips #000 screwdriver to remove the ten screws that secure the middle frame.

    • Starting from the bottom near the USB-C port, use a plastic opening tool to pry off the middle panel from the phone.

    • Be careful when doing this because the middle panel comes in two pieces and if you start at the top, you may break the connection between the two pieces.

    • Place the end of the plastic opening tool underneath the ribbon cable that attaches the front-facing camera to the motherboard.

    • Gently life upwards and the ribbon cable will detach from the motherboard.

    • Remove the camera with your fingers or a pair of tweezer.
