Can you just replace the digitizer or is the digitizer glue down to good to the display where it might damage the LCD display when trying to replace the digitizer?

to safely remove the LCD display from the front touch screen glass w/o damaging the LCD screen I advise you to invest in and familiarize yourself with an LCD Separator machine and all the accessories that go along with it. Also, search for the machine and watch the videos..
