Introdução

Use this guide to remove or replace the rear glass of the Huawei P20.

Opening the Huawei P20 will damage the splash and dust protection seals on the device. If you do not replace the adhesive seals, your phone will function normally but will lose its protection.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

  1. Before you begin, switch off your phone.
    • Before you begin, switch off your phone.

    • Apply a heated iOpener to the back of the phone to loosen the adhesive beneath the back cover. Apply the iOpener for at least two minutes.

  2. Secure a suction handle to the bottom of the back cover, as close to the edge as possible. If the phone's rear glass is cracked, the suction handle may not stick. Try lifting it with strong tape, or superglue the suction handle in place and allow it to cure so you can proceed. Lift the back cover with the suction handle to create a small gap between the cover and the frame.

    • Lift the back cover with the suction handle to create a small gap between the cover and the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • If you have trouble, apply more heat to further soften the adhesive. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • Slide the opening pick to the bottom right corner.

  3. Insert a second opening pick and slide it to the bottom left corner  to cut the adhesive. Leave the opening picks in place to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

Conclusão

Secure the new back cover with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

After installing the rear glass, apply pressure for several minutes to help the adhesive form a good bond, such as by placing it under a stack of heavy books.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
