With the display assembly stripped down to the midframe, it's time to test out a common repair: screen replacement!

After some heat and a bit of prying with an opening pick, we separate the display assembly from the midframe.

It's not a fun job, but it's certainly easier than another One we opened up on our teardown table.

The midframe bears the designation PC+GF, indicating it was made of polycarbonate infused with glass fibers.

We're a bit disappointed — we can't file it away and light it on fire, like we've done in the past. Sadness.
