Introdução

Use this guide to remove and replace the display in your Nexus 6P smartphone.

To protect your eyes from glass shreds and get a better grip to open the phone you might want to apply some tape onto the screen.

When reassembling apply new adhesive where it is necessary.

It is possible to remove the back cover with an iOpener as seen in this guide but it's a lengthy and difficult procedure. We recommend a heat gun or something similar. The adhesive in the Nexus 6P is extremely sticky and especially the glass and plastic cover on the backside break or bend most of the time whilst doing this repair. Use a SIM card eject tool, to pop out and remove the SIM card tray. Use an iOpener to loosen the adhesive underneath the small plastic cover at the bottom of the phone.

The knife is really sharp. Take care, not to cut yourself or your phone. Insert a knife between the phone and the plastic cover. Pry up the plastic cover until you can insert an opening pick. Slide the opening pick underneath the plastic cover to cut the adhesive.

Insert a razor knife between the metal back cover and the front glass to create a gap. Insert an opening pick into the gap and slide it to the top right corner. The knife is really sharp, be careful, not to cut yourself or your phone. Insert a second opening pick and slide it to the top left corner.

  • Slide the opening picks along the edges to seperate the plastic clips, holding back cover and midframe together.

  • Remove the rear cover.

There is a black plastic band around the front glass. So stick the razor between the metal back and outside of the black plastic that is around the front glass. If you look closely at the first picture you can see the black plastic strip outside of the front glass. If you stick it between the black plastic and screen you could leave the mid frame in the metal case and only lift up the the glass and screen.

While I was performing this, the three flat ribbon cables were stuck to the metal plate and came up with it. Watch out for that possibility.

Warning: do not insert the spudger or plastic card too deep underneath the battery. The display cable runs underneath the battery. Scroll down to the next step to see where the cable is. Insert the flat end of a spudger as deep as the notch and carefully slide along the edge to cut the adhesive…

The display cable seems to be completely attached to backing, not free to move at all. The warning made me think it would be floating between the battery and the back of the battery area, however this is not the case. You shouldn’t need to worry too much about it, but you also don’t need to stick anything that deep since the adhesive isn’t where the display cable is. You can see where the adhesive is in the picture for the next step. It’s the black sort of rectangular-ish pad to the right of the display cable. There’s a second taller adhesive pad on the left side of the display cable which must’ve stuck to the battery when they removed it for this guide. When I took the battery out both of the adhesive pads stayed attached to the battery.

If the adhesive felt hard to cut, reheat it with your iOpener. Slide the opening pick from the top right around the corner and down along the side to the lower right. Move it around the corner and towards the charging port to separate the rest of the adhesive.
