The two 2.3 mm screws are not the same: on one of them, the thread stops before the top of the screw. Is that normal, or problematic?
Exactly the same with me (I’m not sure it happened immediately after repairing): I will try to clean the home button like @decker5 and let you know…
My stopper didn't look like yours: there were 2 different holes for the 2 wires: the one for the central white wire was marked 5 and the black, shielding "wire" was marked 7.
So instead of drilling the thing into a total mess, I decided this stopper was the bad guy that ruined the wire in the first place, and replaced it altogether by the silicon wonder called "Sugru".
Sugru also works as a preventive cure of our problem: https://sugru.com/videos/how-to-repair-a...
Sugru's motto "Hack things better" is in line with iFixit spirit, and I think it applies as I expect my repaired charger to be better than the original, for this problem...
I never managed to separate the 2 parts on the lower side. But I could still proceed with the follonwing.
