In the following steps, you will use a heat gun to soften the adhesive securing the outer black border around the underside of the front glass panel to the display.

Before starting, be sure to clean the display glass with a lint-free cloth moistened with a mild solution; it will make the suction cup adhere better, and will make checking for dust on reassembly easier.

With the heat gun set to low, start by heating the outer black border near the upper right corner of the glass panel.

Due to the heat applied, it is normal for a layer of condensation to develop on the inside of the glass panel and/or the outside of the LCD. It can be removed with glass cleaner once the glass is separated from the display.
