Introdução

Use this guide to replace a cracked or faulty screen, including the display and digitizer, on your Google Pixel 2 XL. If it does not include adhesive, the replacement part will need replacement adhesive in order to seal the phone. There may also be small parts that need to be transferred from the original display to the replacement. Inspect both displays closely to make sure all relevant components are moved from the original display to the replacement.

If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond. Apply a suction cup as close to the SIM slot edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case. This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener,  heat gun, or hair dryer. This requires a significant amount of force and patience.

Gently lift the display from the right side of the phone, opening it like a book. If the display doesn't readily lift, do some extra prying to separate the last of the adhesive.

Use the point of a spudger to lift the display cable connector up and out of its socket on the motherboard. To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

  • Before installing a new display, it's very important to remove all traces of the old adhesive from the frame, while taking special care to remove any small glass fragments.

  • After removing all traces of glue and glass from the frame, clean the adhesion areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (at least 90%). This will ensure a better seal for the new display and adhesive.

  • The best way to secure the new screen is with a sheet of custom-cut double-sided tape, but high-adhesion double-sided tape, like Tesa 61395, will work too. Apply the tape to the edges of the frame where the old adhesive was, align the screen, and press it into place.

Be very careful on the bottom connection, if done incorrectly, 2 small components controlling bottom speaker are easily damaged, this will result in a motherboard replacement or replacing someones phone. Take it from me and a few others on the site…go at this slow and careful. Besides that risk, the phone is pretty simple to repair.

can you separate outer glass screen layer from lcd?

Tyler W - Responder

.Every layer of the full lamination screen is essential to the display, the surface layer is not just for protection.So I think if you removed it, the screen would be damaged .

Showing where to place the new tape would be helpful.

Office Administrator - Responder

Is it correct in saying that you have to replace the screen and digitizer? You can not just replace the screen itself, correct?

Joel Jones - Responder

That’s correct—the LCD and digitizer are fused and have to be removed as one unit.

I see sites selling just the screen and I assumed it was bogus. Thanks for the confirmation. Is there only that one company that sells it? The UBreakIFix site? https://goo.gl/VPg5oQ

I’m not sure of the best place to buy the screen, but I’m sure some other stores sell it as well. I would just read reviews and make sure you purchase from a reputable seller.

I found the instructions pretty helpful. For me the hardest parts were removing the screen since it was extensively cracked and the suction cup wouldn’t stick with tape, and removing the plastic covers without feeling like I was going to break the phone. The screen yielded with a heat gun and careful prying. I bought my screen from Witrigs and it came with 2 sets of adhesive stickers. Applying the sticker was a little challenging, but I succeeded with the second sticker.

Excellent guide, especially when followed with an I-opener tool kit… the adhesive that is suggested is a joy to work with (get the 1mm thick roll) i placed a single strip along each edge and another two small strips just on the far side of each speaker had zero issues lining up and there is no gap between new screen and the body. A+ repair guide, great tools. Happy phone.
