You need a decent quality T4 screwdriver here - the rubbish on that cm free with the screen assembly I bought failed completely to grip or loosen the screws. With one from a decent set (ForgeSteel from ScrewFix) they came out easily. A fridge magnet is useful to keep the screws on.

Image 1/3: Don't use a metal tool for disconnecting the flex cable. There are many small elements near the connectors. You could break them. If you don't have a suitable tool just use your nails. Image 2/3: Now we have to transfer the earpiece. Image 3/3: Now we have to transfer the earpiece.
  • Lift the rear bezel and unhook the display assembly flex cable.
