Use this guide to remove the rear glass on your Redmi Note 7.

Depending on your replacement part you need to transfer your fingerprint sensor from your old rear glass to the new one. Double check your replacement part before starting this guide.

You’ll need replacement adhesive for the rear glass and the fingerprint sensor to reattach them when reassembling the device.

  2. Secure a suction handle to the bottom edge of the rear glass, as close to the edge as possible. If your rear glass is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the rear glass. Lift the rear glass with the suction handle to create a small gap between the glass and the frame.
