Use a suction cup or an iSclack to pull up on the glass and create a slight gap between the glass and the metal frame. If your display is badly cracked, a suction cup may not adhere. It may help to first cover the display with a layer of packing tape. Alternatively, you can superglue your suction cup to the display. Insert an opening pick into the gap.

  • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

  • Slide the pick around the sides and bottom of the display to cut the adhesive. Apply more heat as needed.

  • Work carefully—the glass is thin and will crack easily if you try to force it.

  • Separate the top edge last. There are antennas on both sides, so be careful not to damage them. Use more heat or a bit of isopropyl alcohol to help weaken the adhesive.

Ziehe das Glas mit einem Saugheber oder einem iSclack hoch und erzeuge einen kleinen Spalt zwischen dem Glas und dem Metallrahmen.

Wenn dein Glas stark zersplittert ist, kann ein Saugheber nicht haften. Überdecke das Glas mit einer Schicht von Paketband. Du kannst auch den Saugheber auch mit Sekundenkleber am befestigen.

Setze ein Plektrum in den Spalt ein.

Schiebe das Plektrum an den Seiten und der Unterkante entlang, trenne dabei den Kleber auf. Erwärme nochmals, wenn nötig.

Arbeite behutsam - das Glas ist sehr dünn und kann leicht brechen, wenn es zu stark belastet wird.

Trenne die Oberkante zuletzt auf. Auf beiden Seiten befinden sich Antennen, die nicht beschädigt werden dürfen. Erwärme nochmals oder tröpfle etwas Isopropylalkohol ein, um den Kleber zu schwächen.
