Be careful when using a heat gun in the forthcoming steps. Use it at a very low heat setting, and make sure not to melt the plastic framework.

Using a heat gun or hairdryer, heat the top area of the front panel assembly for approximately 20 seconds.

Use your fingernails or a plastic opening tool to separate the glass from the front panel assembly. The glass is held to the front panel assembly by adhesive, it may require some work to free it.

If it seems that too much force is required to separate the glass from the front panel, try using the heat gun again to reheat the problematic area.

Use either the existing double-sided tape (if it is still in good condition) or new tape when reattaching the new digitizer.
