Introduction

Use this guide to replace the rear case on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0.

  1. Before disassembling your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0, be sure it is powered off. At the top of the tablet, nudge the blue plastic opening tool between the back plastic casing and the front panel's metal rim. Do not use excessive force when prying the clips, fastening the casing together, open because they can easily break.

  3. Continue prying the blue plastic opening tool along the perimeter of the tablet to separate the back plastic casing from the front assembly panel. As right-handers, we found it easiest to move clockwise and use more pressure around the corners to facilitate the process.
