Be sure to buy two, three or even more replacement adhesive strips, because depending on the batch or brand, most of them can’t be separated easily, they deform and then they are next to useless.
@iFixit - Guys check the adhesives you are sending to people. The Tesa ones are simply a nightmare to use.
The isopropyl alcohol can only remove so much of the old adhesive. After the first pass with the q-tip use an iFixit Opening Tool to carefully scrape off the old adhesive. There is always some left on the case.
Buy two clamps, thank me later. Books are good but trust me the clamps are way better. Also expect the screen to wobble ever so slightly after, since the adhesive seems to be a bit elastic in nature.
Avoid hot or even warm showers to avoid causing the screen to detach from the adhesive.
Don’t expect the adhesive strip to follow the edges of the watch’s case. If you try to fit it on the edges on one side, you may end up coming up short on the other, as the above image illustrates. Just try to place it slightly off the edges. It will be ok.
The Tesa adhesives that you sent are simply aweful. The cuts aren’t deep enough to safely remove the replacement adhesive with the blue protective film from the backing paper. Plus when you actually manage to do so, the adhesive’s dimensions are a bit short for the Series 3 42mm model.
Once they have, you'll be able to view a graph of their reputation gained over time.
Here's a preview of what the graph will look like:
