First you pop off the silver retainer around the whole gps system. The retainer is snapped on in various spots all around the retainer. Just work your way around till you pop all the snaps and it will come right off. Take not of the hole you see on the left part of the screen on the retainer to put back on the right way.

As you life the screen up off the circuit board there will be a ribbon cable attaching the screen to the board. Take a plastic tool on the top side of the white connector and pry up on it to disconnect the ribbon cable.

Take metal backing off of lcd screen. There are 2 ribbon cables coming from the screen. The one on the left is for the screen and the one on the right is the digitizer.

  • Make sure when you order a new screen it comes with both parts already together. Got mine on ebay for $20.00. They will sell the lcd screen alone with out touchscreen digiitizer

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. When ordering a new screen make sure you get a lcd screen with digitizer. It will make it alot easeir down the road. I got on ebay and found a lcd screen with digitizer for $20.00 from a guy in china.
