    • Using an iOpener to soften the adhesive will help safely remove it. Follow our iOpener instructions to use it.

  1. Using the edge of a set of tweezers or a metal spudger, gently pry the earpiece speaker contact cable up, to separate this portion of the camera and sensor cable from the adhesive below.

Be great if someone could put together some *reassembly* instructions for this. Particularly the section on the camera and sensors area.

It seems like a lot of steps have gone missing from this guide. The related guide (5SE) has much more explicit instructions for the same activity and should be used instead of this one. iPhone SE Front Facing Camera and Sensor Cable Replacement
