Introduction

Replacing the back cover of the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is somewhat different than on other phones, but the process is simple. Follow these steps:

  1. Place the phone face-down, and use a heat gun or hair dryer to evenly heat the back surface until to soften the adhesive.

    • While Pulling on the suction cup, slide a thin plastic spacer (guitar picks work well) between the back cover and the phone. Slide it around the edges to break the adhesive seal. Be careful, but don't be afraid to use some force. You should hear a sticky breaking sound.

Reassembling just in reverse order you’ll  get a non-dust and non-waterproof device and not normally fixed rear cover.  You have to apply special Sony Xperia M4 Aqua E2303 Adhesive Sticker, 56BTUL0030A.
