Einleitung

Use this guide to replace the front facing camera in your Nexus 6P smartphone. When reassembling your phone 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.

The knife is really sharp. Take care, not to cut yourself or your phone.

  • 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.
