The battery of your Motorola moto g10 is running low? You notice a significant drop in performance?

If the one-year manufacturers' warranty has already expired, it is recommended that you replace the battery. In this detailed photo tutorial, we will show you step by step how to do it.

Once you open your device, the specified IP certification (protection against dust and water ingress) will expire.If your battery is inflated, keep in mind that the gas inside the battery is flammable and can escape. If you do not feel confident enough, have it replaced at a repair shop.

To avoid scratches on case and screen glass, make sure your workspace is clean and level.

We wish you good luck with your repair!

    1. Press and hold the power button until the Power Off menu appears on the screen.
    2. Tap Power off in the displayed menu. Your smartphone will shut down within a few seconds.
  2. Removing the SIM tray

    Used tools
    1. Press a thin, pointed object into the small round opening next to the SIM tray to push it out of the device frame. We use a SIM tool for this purpose.
    2. Then pull the tray completely out of the frame.
    Used tools
  3. Detaching the back cover

    Used tools

    The plastic back cover is hooked into the screen unit and slightly glued as well. It can be loosened particularly well with a flat plastic tool, such as a pick or the iPlastix.

    The frame is especially unstable at the opening where the SIM tray used to be. Therefore, be particularly careful at this point.

    1. Carefully slide your tool under the edge of the back cover.
    2. Now move the tool around the back cover piece by piece. The hooks with the screen unit should loosen audibly and noticeably.

    The back cover is glued separately around the camera module and fingerprint scanner.Press down the camera module and fingerprint scanner when detaching the back cover, so that they are not accidentally torn off.

    1. Heat the adhesive by briefly running a hot air device over it. We use a heat gun for this, but a normal hair dryer will also do.
    2. Carefully detach the back cover.
    Used tools
  5. Removing the protective films

    moto g10 - Removing the protective films 01

    There are strips of protective film on the edge of the screen unit. Since they partly cover the screws, they have to be removed.

    1. Carefully pull off the strips with tweezers.
    2. Discard them if you do not want to reattach them after the repair.
    Used tools
  6. Unscrewing the plastic cover

    • 2 × 3.3 mm Phillips
    • 7 × 3.9 mm Phillips

    Use a screw storage to keep an overview during the repair and avoid losing anything. Use an old sewing box, for example. With our high-quality magnetic pad, you have the additional advantage that nothing slips.

    1. Loosen the nine Phillips screws from the plastic cover above the motherboard.
    2. Arrange them on the magnetic pad in a way that you can easily identify the two different screw lengths later on.
  7. Removing the plastic cover

    The fingerprint sensor lies on the plastic cover. To avoid damaging it, you should hold aside when removing the plastic cover.

    1. Carefully lever the plastic cover upwards, so that the lugs that hook it into the screen unit are released. We use a plastic spudger for this.
    2. Hold the fingerprint sensor aside and take the loosened plastic cover out of the device.

    1. Place the suction cup on the lower edge of the battery and pull it upwards to lift the battery up.
    2. At the same time, use a plastic lever tool on the lower edge of the battery to push the battery upwards. We use the battery spudger for this purpose.

    The replacement battery of the moto g10 does not yet have any adhesive strips integrated on the back. However, the remaining adhesive on the bottom of the screen unit is usually sufficient to securely reattach it. Otherwise, we can recommend our universal adhesive strips for attaching the battery.

    1. Insert the new battery into the screen unit and press it firmly.
    2. If necessary, heat it from the screen side, so that the adhesive bonds properly again.

    Always connect the battery connector last to avoid a potential short circuit

    1. Carefully reattach the battery connector to the motherboard.
  19. Installing the plastic cover

    The fingerprint scanner must lie on the plastic cover. Therefore, it has to be held aside when inserting the cover.

    There are small lugs on the edge of the cover. These have to be inserted into the screen unit, so that it sits level.

    1. Hold the fingerprint scanner to the side.
    2. Place the plastic cover over the motherboard and press it firmly.
    3. Put the fingerprint scanner on the cover.
    Used tools
  20. Screwing the plastic cover tight

    • 2 × 3.3 mm Phillips
    • 7 × 3.9 mm Phillips

    At this point, make sure that you do not mix up the two different screw lengths. A screw that is too long in the wrong place can damage the screen in the worst case.

    1. Fasten the plastic cover with the nine Phillips screws.
  21. Testing your Motorola moto g10

    Heat gun

    The back cover must lie flat everywhere. If it protrudes at one spot, there is usually a component inside that is not installed correctly.

    1. When everything works press the back cover back onto the screen unit. You should hear and feel it click into place.
    2. Run your hot air device around the camera module and fingerprint scanner, so that the glue bonds properly.
    Used tools
  23. Inserting the SIM tray

    Make sure to insert the SIM tray the right way around. If you push the tray the wrong way with too much force, not only the tray itself but also your moto g10 may be damaged.

    1. Finish your repair by inserting the SIM tray. It is seated correctly when you can feel it click into place.
