    • Insert a SIM card eject tool or a paperclip into the small hole in the SIM card tray, located on the left edge of the phone, opposite of the power and volume buttons.

    • Press firmly to eject the tray.

  2. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the SIM card tray from the phone.

    • The SIM card will fall out of the tray easily.

    • When reinserting the SIM card, ensure that it is in the proper orientation relative to the tray.

    • If your display glass is cracked, tape over the glass to prevent bodily harm and further breakage. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond.

    • Apply a suction cup as close to the SIM slot edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case.

    • This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener, heat gun, or hair dryer.

  5. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 5, image 1 of 2 Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 5, image 2 of 2
    • In the following steps, extra caution is required in certain areas to avoid damage to the phone:

    • Do not insert the pick more than 0.25 inches (6 mm) into the bottom edge of the phone. If the pick contacts the folded portion of the OLED panel, it can damage the display.

    • Do not cut along the left edge; there are delicate display cables that can be damaged.

    • Only make very shallow cuts in the upper left corner; prying deeply can damage the front-facing camera.

  6. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 6, image 1 of 2 Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 6, image 2 of 2
    • Slide the opening pick down the right side of the phone to separate the display adhesive.

    • In the following steps, use the flat edge of the opening pick, rather than a corner, to cut. This will help prevent inserting the pick too deeply.

    • Slide the opening pick around the lower-right corner and along the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Reinsert the flat edge of the pick at the top-right corner of the phone, and slide it around the corner and the top edge of the phone.

  9. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 2 Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 9, image 2 of 2
    • Gently lift the display from the right side of the phone, opening it like a book.

    • If the display doesn't readily lift, do some extra prying to separate the last of the adhesive.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the phone's motherboard.

    • Carefully lay the display flat on the table next to the rest of the phone, keeping it close to the phone to avoid straining the display and digitizer cables.

  10. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 10, image 1 of 2 Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 10, image 2 of 2
    • Use the corner of an opening tool to pry up the digitizer cable connector cover.

    • Pry carefully to avoid damaging the cable underneath, or losing the cover itself.

    • Remove the connector cover.

    • Make sure to keep this component so you can reinstall it during reassembly.

  11. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 11, image 1 of 2 Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 11, image 2 of 2
    • Use the point of a spudger to lift the digitizer cable connector up and out of its socket on the motherboard.

    • 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.

    • If any part of your screen doesn't respond to touch after your repair, re-seat this connector, making sure it clicks fully into place and that there's no dust or other obstruction in the socket.

  12. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement: step 12, image 1 of 1
    • Use tweezers to remove any tape from the display connector cover.

    • Make sure all the cables and connectors are clear of the board, and use the flat edge of a spudger to gently lift the bottom of the motherboard.

    • The narrow part of the motherboard is very fragile. If it starts to bend when you lift, stop and make sure there isn't anything holding the board down. The board should lift up without any resistance.

    • Holding the wide part of the motherboard near the SIM card slot, carefully slide the board toward the bottom of the phone while lifting it out of the phone.

    • Remove the motherboard.

    • Try to keep the phone flat with the battery facing up after you remove the motherboard, as the front-facing camera can fall out of the phone case very easily.

    • When reinstalling the motherboard, move all the cables and connectors out of the way of the board and make sure all connectors are aligned with their respective sockets.

    • Apply plenty of heat to the right side of the back glass.

    • Use a small suction cup and pull the glass up to put an opening pick under it.

    • The suction cup included in the iFixit kit is too big.

    • If you do not have a suction cup, you can try to fit a jimmy underneath the glass. You will likely damage the enamel using this method.

    • Keep applying heat and slowly moving the opening picks around the top of the phone.

  24. Google Pixel 2 XL Earpiece Speaker Replacement, Earpiece Speaker: step 26, image 1 of 1
