In the following steps, you will separate the display assembly from the Moto Z3 Play's chassis.

The first image shows the back of the display assembly after it has been removed from the phone. The second image shows the front of the phone to reference where the display cable lies.

If you plan to re-use the display assembly, pay particular attention to the side edges. When slicing through the glue in this area, you must be careful to insert your tool less than ~1.5 mm, or your tool will come in contact with the LCD and damage it.

Take special care when cutting near the display cable. If you pry too deep or too forcefully, it is very easy to damage the cable. If you encounter extra resistance around this area, do not try to force the pick forward. Pull it out and reinsert it on the other side of the display cable before you continue cutting.

Playing cards are a safer, but much slower, prying tool. The soft paper cards are less likely to damage the LCD, which is good news if you plan to reuse it.
