Insert an opening pick under the display and carefully separate the Force Touch gasket from the display.

iFixit screen and battery repair kits include a replacement Force Touch gasket, so don't fret too much if yours is damaged.

Otherwise, to preserve the Force Touch gasket, pry carefully under the edge of the display. If the Force Touch gasket splits when lifting the display, or if you separate the gasket layers, you'll also need to replace the Force Touch gasket itself.

Slide the pick around the display to separate the adhesive between the Force Touch gasket and the display.

Don't insert the opening pick deeper than 1/16th of an inch (~2 mm).
