    • Release the battery connector and peel the sticky tape from the bottom corner of the battery.

    • Use the sticky tape to carefully pull up and remove the battery.

    The battery was glued to the back cover on the phone I just took apart. Ended up destroying the back panel trying to release it. Still it's only £3 for a replacement from eBay.

    • Removing the screen is the same as opening the back cover. Heat, open a gap, insert a guitar pick, slide and cut the sticker. Start from the top.

    • Tip: The glue here is stronger, you may need to insert something sharp in the corner to start.

    • It's a weird design that the earpiece speaker is stuck onto the Sony Xperia Z3 front glass and not the supporting frame. It means it is possible to remove the LCD screen with the earpiece speaker attached, or separate the speaker from its securing bracket.

    • The above steps depend on the length of the guitar pick that you use.

    Make sure that your glue is even around the edges. When I reinstalled the screen I pushed down a little too hard on an irregularity on the screen, I think also the casing was bent inwards on that edge & it broke the screen so had to buy a new screen.

I purchased Sony z3 dual in San Francisco and the screen got broke were can I get new screen fix in India

My Xperia Z3 fell and my screen started showing "glitchy" images. I sent it for diagnostics, and they told me that the flat cable was damaged and that I need to replace both the screen and the side frame.

Now, my question is - do I really need to replace the side frame as well, or can I just replace the screen? I take it that the flat cable itself is attached to the screen and cannot be removed, as shown in the image for step 10?

After seeing your images, I don't understand why they would tell me that the side frame needs to be replaced as well.
