Apply a heat gun or iOpener to front of screen to allow it to warm up the glue.

Use opening tool and work your way around the front of the screen. You may have to alternate applying the heat and prying to get it loose enough to separate.

Be careful not overdo the heat. Use a low temperature and take your time to separate the screen.

Apply new screen to black backing.
