Do I need to de-solder if I'm just replacing the window glass?

To isaac: no. The exterior glass is separate from the LCD.

Do you recommend the replacent for LCD sold on Ebay?

Where did you find the replacement screen? The one I ordered that says it's for the d5200 is not the same as the one in it or in your pictures.

How do you disconnect the multi-plug that is shown connected in image 4 and disconnected in image five? Does it unclip or slide out?

The white latch on the right side for that ribbon won’t close. What should I do?

Does anyone know if the D5200 and D3300 share the same LCD screen? Ebay, Aliexpress, DHCamera show screens described as D3300/D5200 . I’d rather not pay $200 for a screen replacement I can do myself for <$25
