Use this guide to remove or replace a cracked or faulty screen and digitizer assembly on your Motorola Moto Z Force Droid.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair.

Before you begin, look at the last step and make sure your replacement part matches the one shown. This guide is for replacing a screen/display that is already installed in a new frame. If you bought a bare display instead, you will need to carefully separate your old display from your phone’s existing frame, and then glue the new display in. Those steps are not covered by this guide.

Apply a heated iOpener to the lower glass panel on the back of the phone for five minutes.
  • Apply a heated iOpener to the lower glass panel on the back of the phone for five minutes.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the panel warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

Insert an opening pick into the small gap between the rear case and the glass panel.
  • Insert an opening pick into the small gap between the rear case and the glass panel.

    • The gap is very small and the adhesive is very stubborn, so it may help to rock or slide the pick back and forth to work it into the gap. If you're having trouble inserting the pick, go back a step and heat the panel further.

    • Do not pry over the charging port. It is framed with plastic that can be damaged when prying.

  • With tip of the pick under the glass panel, carefully pry upward to slightly separate the rear case and the panel.

  • Slide the pick in between the panel and the rear case.

  • Slide the pick across the length of the panel to slice the adhesive holding it to the rear case.

  • Use the opening pick to carefully pry up the glass panel.

  • Remove the glass panel.

  • Repeat the previous four heating and removal steps for the upper glass panel.

  • During reassembly, remove leftover adhesive from the panels and the rear case. Then clean those areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (greater than 90%) and a lint-free cloth. This will ensure proper adhesion of the panels.

  • Reinstall the panels using a precut adhesive strip or a high-bond double-sided tape, such as Tesa 61395.

  • Remove the six 4 mm T3 Torx screws securing the display assembly.

  • Insert the point of a spudger into the hole in the bottom right corner of the rear case.

  • Press the spudger into the hole to separate the display from the rear case.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • Use a finger to maintain separation between the display assembly and the rear case while you remove the spudger.

  • Reinsert the flat end of the spudger in the gap between the display assembly and the rear case.

  • Repeat the separation and prying process for the other side of the phone.

  • There is one clip on each side of the phone—make sure both are free before you continue.

  • Be careful not to separate the bottom edge of the display more than 0.5 inches (13 mm) from the rear case. The display cable is still connected and can be damaged if the bottom of the phone is opened too far.

  • Tilt the top right corner of the display down to disengage one of the tabs that secure the top of the display.

  • Tilt the other corner down next, to disengage the other tab.

  • The display cable is still connected and can be damaged by too much display movement. Tilt the display carefully and stop if you encounter significant resistance.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • Lift the right edge of the display to hinge the phone open like a book, no more than 45°.

  • Gently lift the display enough to clear the clip from the edge of the rear case, maintaining the 45º angle.

  • Rest the display on the table behind the phone and open to 90º to allow access to the display cable.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the display cable connector up out of its socket.

  • Only pry up on the display connector itself and not the socket on the motherboard.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • Remove the display.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • Only the LCD screen and digitizer assembly remains.

  • Check carefully to make sure your replacement part matches, and that you've removed all the necessary parts from the old frame for installation in the new one.
