    • A strip will be attached to the motherboard as shown.

    • Using tweezers, carefully detach the strip from the motherboard.

    That strip is the LCD display assembly flex cable, and it is attached to the motherboard via a ZIF connector. Using tweezers or a spudger, the plastic latch (which is on the side nearest the edge of the phone) must be gently lifted up away from the phone’s edge. Only then can the flex cable be safely (and carefully) removed.

    If the repairer attempts to pull the flex cable out of its connector without first opening the latch, either the latch or the flex cable itself is likely to break, greatly complicating the repair.
