    1. The display glass is glued to the chassis. Heat the display with hot air so it’s easier to remove from the chassis.
    2. Insert a pick between the display and the chassis, and use a suction cup to lift the display. Repeat this process for the entire device. If the glue is too strong, heat the display again.
  4. Disconnecting the display

    1. Lift the display glass and flip it over 180° at the top of the device.
    2. Now the display is exposed. It’s glued to the chassis so you need to heat it with hot air before the next step.
    3. Using the steel laboratory spatula, carefully detach the display. Insert the spatula between the display and the chassis.
    4. Once the display is detached, you can carefully flip it over 180° just like the display glass. Note that the display unit is connected to the device under the display.
