46 steps
  1. Switching off your Oppo Find X5 Lite

    Find X5 Lite - Switching off your Oppo Find X5 Lite 02

    Use our checklist to test the basic functions of your Oppo Find X5 Lite before repairing. This way you can check afterwards if your repair was successful.

    1. Press and hold the power button for a few seconds.
    2. Tap on Power off in the displayed menu.
  2. Heating up the back cover

    Find X5 Lite - Heating up the back cover 01
    Find X5 Lite - Heating up the back cover 02
    Used tools
    Heat gun

    The edge of the back cover is heavily glued. Use a heat gun or an ordinary hair dryer to heat it sufficiently.

    1. Heat the edge of the back cover by running the hot air device evenly over it.
    Used tools
  3. Lifting up the back cover

    As an alternative to the suction cup, we can recommend the iSclack, which requires less force to lift up the back cover.

    The iFlex can be inserted particularly well between the back cover and the screen unit due to its sharp edges.

    1. Attach a suction cup to the lower edge of the back cover and pull it upwards to create a narrow gap.
    2. At the same time, insert a flat tool into the gap between the back cover and the screen unit.
    Used tools
  4. Removing the back cover

    Find X5 Lite - Removing the back cover 02
    Find X5 Lite - Removing the back cover 03
    Find X5 Lite - Removing the back cover 04
    Used tools
    Heat gun

    In order to prevent the glue of the back cover from bonding again, we recommend sliding flat plastic picks under the back cover at regular intervals.

    To avoid damaging the camera module, you should not insert your tool too far. At this point, the hard plastic pick is therefore particularly suitable.

    1. Drive your tool completely around the edge of the back cover to loosen it piece by piece.
    2. Put the detached back cover aside.

    2. Then pull the tray completely out of the frame.
    Used tools
  6. Unscrewing the middle frame

    • 18 × 3.7 mm Phillips

    We recommend using a screw storage, such as our magnetic pad, to keep all small parts and screws safe and organized.

    1. Remove the 18 Phillips screws fixing the middle frame and place them in the screw storage.
  7. Removing the middle frame

    1. First, separate the cable's connector from the USB board.
    2. Then also loosen the slot. This is best done with tweezers.
