Einleitung

Use this guide to replace a cracked rear glass of the Huawei P20 Pro.

Opening the Huawei P20 Pro will damage the waterproof sealing on the device. If you do not replace the adhesive seals, your phone will function normally but will lose its water-protection.

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

  1. Switch off your phone.
    • Switch off your phone.

    • Use an iOpener to loosen the adhesive beneath the rear glass. Apply the iOpener for at least two minutes. You might want to repeat this step several times during the back cover removal.

    • The adhesive of the Huawei P20 Pro is of moderate strength, however a hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used if you aren't able to open the device with the iOpener. Be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  2. If the phone's rear glass is cracked, a suction cup may not stick very well. Try lifting it with strong tape, or superglue the suction cup in place and allow it to cure so you can proceed. Press a suction cup onto the rear glass close to the bottom edge of the phone. Lift the bottom edge with the suction cup, opening a slight gap between the rear glass and the frame.

Do you suggest any particular kind of adhesive? I always have trouble with these things. Sooner or later, if not immediately, any glass or screen I fit this way always lifts up. The adhesives that come with the parts always seem weak. I try B-7000 glue or/and double sided tape, but still it won’t sit tight.

Hi Smeargle, the options you already tried are also the ones I’d recommend. When applying new double-sided adhesive I’d also suggest slightly heating the glued area and applying some pressure for a few hours (stack of heavy books overnight might do).
