Before applying any adhesive, make sure your replacement part fits, and that all connectors will connect without putting too much stress on their cables. If it is safe to do so, power on your device and verify that everything functions correctly. If everything works, power off the device and continue.
If anything does not function as expected, visit the Answers Forum for troubleshooting advice.
