    • With a cutter or knife start the separation.

    • You can warm the glass again to make the separation more easy.

    • If you want to change only the touch screen, be careful, don't break the LCD.

    • Finally remove the screen and the glass from the frame.

    • Put the LCD and the screen in their place.

    • Remove the protector from the touch screen.

    • Install the earpiece metal plate - take it from the old touch screen.
