Use this guide to replace a cracked or faulty screen, including the display and digitizer, on your Google Pixel 2. There may also be small parts that need to be transferred from the original display to the replacement. Inspect both displays closely to make sure all relevant components are moved from the original display to the replacement.

Schritt 1 Screen  ¶ 

If your replacement display did not come with pre-installed speaker grilles or a front-facing camera bracket, carefully remove these parts from your old display. Follow the rest of the guide to install them on a new display. To remove the camera bracket, apply heat, then use a thin metal blade to pry the bracket away from the old screen.

Schritt 1 Screen  ¶ 

  • If your replacement display did not come with pre-installed speaker grilles or a front-facing camera bracket, carefully remove these parts from your old display. Follow the rest of the guide to install them on a new display.

  • To remove the camera bracket, apply heat, then use a thin metal blade to pry the bracket away from the old screen.

  • There are two layers that make up the speaker grille—the metal mesh grille, and a layer of thin fabric mesh behind it. Use tweezers to peel both layers off of the old screen together. Do your best to not separate those layers at all.

  • Make sure to install the grilles and gasket before applying display adhesive.

  • Cut two corners of a pre-cut adhesive card so that each side is no more than 12 mm (0.5 inches) long, or cut four 12 mm (0.5 inches) strips of double-sided adhesive.

  • The adhesive strips should be no wider than 1 mm.

  • Apply the adhesive strips to the edges of the flat side of the front-facing camera bracket. When you're done, there should be adhesive on all four edges of the camera bracket.

  • Gently press the adhesive into place using your finger or a spudger.

Schritt 2  ¶ 

Place the camera bracket into its slot surrounding the front-facing camera. Make sure the rounded corner of the bracket faces the upper left corner of the phone. If the bracket does not sit flush with the camera, it is not properly seated.

  • Place the camera bracket into its slot surrounding the front-facing camera.

  • Make sure the rounded corner of the bracket faces the upper left corner of the phone. If the bracket does not sit flush with the camera, it is not properly seated.

  • Peel the white backing off of the adhesive strips.

Schritt 3  ¶ 

Use your finger or the flat edge of a spudger to reconnect the new screen's display cable connector.

Schritt 3  ¶ 

  • Use your finger or the flat edge of a spudger to reconnect the new screen's display cable connector.

  • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

Schritt 4  ¶ 

In this step, you will temporarily install the new screen in order to properly align it with the front-facing camera bracket while adhering the bracket to the screen. Make sure there is no adhesive anywhere on the screen before attempting this step. You should not seal the phone closed yet.

  • In this step, you will temporarily install the new screen in order to properly align it with the front-facing camera bracket while adhering the bracket to the screen.

  • Make sure there is no adhesive anywhere on the screen before attempting this step. You should not seal the phone closed yet.

  • Very carefully align the lower edge of your new display with the lower edge of the phone case.

  • Set the lower edge of the screen in the case, and slowly hinge it down toward the phone case, being careful to keep it properly aligned with the case.

  • Set the screen down in the case and press down on the front-facing camera hole to ensure that the bracket is adhered to the screen.

  • Lift the screen up and away from the phone case and check that the camera bracket is adhered to the screen.

  • Disconnect the display cable.

Schritt 5  ¶ 

Cut a strip of 1 mm wide double-sided tape to be about 3 cm long (1.25 inches). Lay the adhesive strip along the upper edge of the earpiece speaker slot in your new display so that it's centered over the slot and touching the upper edge. The adhesive strip needs to be as close as possible to the edge of the slot without overlapping.

  • Gently press the adhesive strip into place on the display with your finger or a spudger.

  • Repeat this step to apply a second, identical adhesive strip along the bottom edge of the speaker slot.

  • Peel the white backing away from both adhesive strips.
