13 steps
  1. Switch off the device

    G6 - Switch off the device 02
    G6 - Switch off the device 03
    1. Turn off your device by holding down the power button on the back until the “Power off” option appears.
    2. Tap to confirm and wait until the screen goes black.
  2. Remove back cover

    G6 - Remove back cover 04
    G6 - Remove back cover 05
    G6 - Remove back cover 06
    G6 - Remove back cover 07

    To loosen the back cover, use a heat gun or an ordinary hair dryer. Warm glue is easier to loosen, allowing you to remove the back cover.

    The easiest way to loosen the back cover is to use a flat and flexible tool such as the iFlex.

    We also recommend inserting flat picks to prevent the glue from sticking again.

    1. Heat the entire rear glass. It's glued all around the edges and around the home button and over the USB port.
    2. Insert the iFlex between the rear glass and the frame, but not more than 5 mm.

    Be extra careful, the back cover can break very easily. Don't pry with the tool, but only slide it around the edges. If necessary, apply the heat several times and try again. Removing the back cover might take a while. Take a little more time and work carefully to make sure you don't break anything.

    1. Once the rear glass comes off in one place, insert a pick into the gap to keep it open.
    2. Then run the iFlexit around all the edges to gradually loosen the glue.
    3. The rear glass has extra glue around the home button and over the USB port. Here you need to insert the iFlexit a little deeper. But not to far, or you could damage parts on the home button.
    4. Once the rear glass is unglued, you can lift it off. There's not cable attached.
  3. Remove speaker

    G6 - Remove speaker 02

    • 4 × 2.7 mm Phillips

    The LG G6 has only one screw length and only the midframe and speaker are screwed in.

    1. Remove the equal-length Phillips screws from the speaker and store them for later.
    2. Then pry out the speaker from the side of the battery and take it out of the device.

    2. Slide a flat, thin tool into the opening and pry out the midframe here.
    3. The midframe is clipped into the device at 4 points. Carefully release it and take it out once it moves easily.
