Transfer 3G Antenna To New Glass

First I am not sure I am referring to this antenna correctly. On step 18 on this page it refers to this antenna as the GPS antenna:

iPad 3G Front Panel Assembly Replacement

but on step 7 on this page:

iPad 3G Teardown

it sounds like it is referred to as the 3G antenna. Regardless I am trying to transfer the antenna pictured in step 7 on this page:

iPad 3G Teardown

I can get the antenna out from between the glass and the frame but without using a heat gun I see no way of getting the antenna back in the new glass (no mine did not come with the antenna, and no I did not get it at ifixit). I have tried placing the antenna in place but I get VERY poor 3G. I looks and sounds like this is do to how the antenna is supposed to use the frame as an antenna.

Does anybody have any experience with transferring the Apple antenna to a new frame that does already have an antenna?

Thanks.

andyboutte,

Yeah, that antennae is quite difficult. Unfortunately, it seems that the best way is to loosen the adhesive using a heat gun in order to preserve what seems to be some sort of NASA grade adhesive :)

It takes a lot of time and patience, so hang in there. And be careful with the heat gun. If you have it set too high or too close to your work area, you can accidently melt the plastic gasket attached to the digitizer glass. I usually leave mine at about 500 degrees.

Ok, it is a tough one. Because me digitizer was bad, I sacraficed it and pryed the antenna out. The glue is like alien snot. This worked fast and the digitizer was being thrown away anyway. Cheers.
