Use this guide to replace the battery in your Huawei P9 smartphone.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. The battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured, but the chances of that happening are much lower if discharged.

  1. First switch off your phone and remove the SIM card tray. Unscrew the two Pentalobe P2 screws located at the bottom next to the device's USB C port. If the screen is cracked you might want to use some tape to protect your eyes from glass shreds and get a better grip to open the phone.

  2. Use an iSclack or a suction handle to separate the display unit from the rear panel. Don't remove the rear panel completely yet. There is a cable connected to it! It is running from the finger print sensor to the display unit.

    If you cant get suction because of cracks in the screen, use wide tape to create smooth surface.

    If your screen is smashed, and nothing else will work (iSclack etc), you can get a thin blade between the casing and the screen assembly and the bottom. The screen assembly can then be pried out. I fought with mine before discovering this. Be careful of the broken glass.

    I struggled to remove screen with suction cups due to damage to the back case. I used a jim to pry from bottom by usb c port, worked well.

    On my model, I had 2 Little torx screws beside the USB port. If so, the screen won’t come out with them on.

    Lola Gillet - Ответить

    Interesting, sure those were 6-starred (Torx) and not 5-starred (Pentalobe) like mentioned in step 1?

    Tobias Isakeit -

    Are there any tips to help loosen the screen after taking the screws out? I brought in an extra person to help with the suction cup whilst I tried to pry the screen away with it still only moving at most 1mm (maybe less) and not enough to get any pry tools in. Ending up using quite a lot of force - far more than I think I should be to no success. As it stands I’m just ending up doing minor damage to the base of the screen/case.

    Hey A Birch,

    just for the case, I mention — it’s important to pull out the SIM card tray, otherwise, it will block the opening procedure and you’ll damage your phone. In case the frame is damaged or bent you’ll need more force to open the phone. In general, the opening procedure should be fairly easy.

    On this step, I found it hard as the screen and the motherboard are attatched, but instead just the screen is coming up, any tips for getting under and lifting up the motherboard + battery. (Trying to do a battery replacement). The screen with that wire on Step 15 for some reference :)

    Removing the plate can be a bit difficult. It was stuck behind the other plate. It bended a bit while removing it, but it doesn't harm if it does.

    • Make sure not to rip or crease the antenna.

    • If you are just removing the battery to get to the display, you can leave the NFC on the battery.

    • The battery is secured with three pieces of adhesive, a removable pull-tab in the center, and on the SIM tray side. A third piece of adhesive on the button side has no pull-tab.

    • Pull the adhesive tabs in a slow constant movement to free the battery.

    • Should those adhesive tabs snap, you might want to use an iOpener to heat and soften them a little bit so you can pry out the battery with a spudger.

    • There are two cables running directly underneath the battery. Take care not to damage them when prying with a spudger! You can see their position in the last picture.

    • Slowly lift the battery toward the button side and free it from the remaining hidden piece of adhesive.

    • When reassembling your phone replace old adhesive with double-sided tape or pre-cut adhesive strips.

    Hi, does the LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly with frame come with new adhesive tabs or battery stickers? I read that if there are no stickers the battery could move and cause damage. Please let me know, i would like to be sure before i place my order.

    Hi Javier! The P9 display kit does have battery adhesive. It’s visible as two orange strips, which are the adhesive release liners. We’ll be sure to specify it better in the component list. Thanks for asking!

    Removing the battery was a bit hard. The tape broke, so it was not easy to remove the battery. I didn't use the Iopener to heat it. I finally succeeded to remove it.

    I do noticed that the battery was very flexible. Wondering if this means she's very old or is it normal after charging a lot of times, or is or maybe because it got humid (my phone is sometimes damped when I have it my shirt when cycling). Compared to the new battery it's a huge difference.

    Steven - Ответить

    Those batteries are allways soft. So, don‘t worry.

    Mathias -

    It will be easyer, if you remove first the mainborad and then the battery. That’s my experience after the repair of this phone.

    Albert Dreistein - Ответить

    Hi, what does it mean

    use the iopener for heating the stickers

    ?

    Does it mean that for this operation it is used a hot air gun? I watched the ifixit page of iopener, but I didn't see such a gun

    Pinuzza - Ответить

    Hi Pinuzza,

    you can find our iOpener here. It is a tool to gently loose adhesive with heat. A heat gun is a more radical way and should be used carefully. You can easily damage components by overheating them. Here is a guide how to use our iOpener.

    Dominik Schnabelrauch -

    @Dominik: First af all thank you very much for the reply and for the extremely detailed guide. I've seen many tutorials, and I put this as the best one, because it considers very important aspects, e.g. to be careful about the electronic components below the battery, the fact that there are 3 stickers, and so on. That said, I have some doubt about iOpener (the same item I had seen and referred to previously): I cannot distinguish 1) the item below the picks and on the left side of the screwdriver, 2) the item on the right side of the picks, 3) the item below the suction cup. Above all, I have an enormous doubt and curiosity about the fact that this tool allows an easy extraction of the battery even heating the stickers, i.e., what tool in the packet should it be the candidate for this purpose, and how?

    Pinuzza -

    (How can it heat?)

    Pinuzza -

    Perhaps can I heat biadhesive stickers using a plastic rod? Perhaps like primitives did, quickly rubbing blades of straw? If I don't understand exactly, I can't buy anything

    Pinuzza - Ответить

    @Dominik, I've just seen the iOpener guide you linked. However, I'm not able to understand: Have I to put all the items of the tool in a microwave? Why heat a screwdriver or the suction cup? I can't see how this could heat the adhesives: they are below, protected by battery.. how heat may reach them?

    Pinuzza - Ответить

    @Pinuzza you only need to place the iOpener in the microwave, not every tool that is needed for the repair. Heat up the iOpener as explained and it will save the heat. Place it on the areas where the adhesive sits underneath the battery/display/etc. Leave the iOpener in its place for at least two minutes so that the heat can reach the adhesive. This will work through the battery, display and/or a circuit board. This way you’ll loosen the adhesive, what makes the removal significantly easier.

    Dominik Schnabelrauch -

    @Dominik, okay now it’s more clear, but I can't understand exactly what is the iOpener in the image you linked (I think iOpener be the name of the entire tool). I see a black fabric case (with iOpener label) which seems to contain all the repair items.. is this the heater? Or the two transparent underneath rectangle?

    Pinuzza - Ответить

    Hi Pinuzza,

    the black fabric case you see in the picture is the iOpener. There’s a liquid in the fabric sleeve that saves heat. This is why you place the iOpener in the microwave to save heat there and then on your device to soften adhesive afterwards. All other parts in the picture are tools for repairing, prying and to cut adhesive. From left to right: screwdriver, 6 opening picks (flat tool to cut adhesive e.g. during a screen removal), blue flat battery blocker (is used if you can’t disconnect the battery in an easy way e.g. in an iPad you can slide it between the connectors), suction cup to pull up displays or rear covers, plastic card (bigger tool to cut adhesive in hard to reach areas e.g under bigger battery packs), the blue opening tool (to cut adhesive and prying tool), tweezers, spudger (all-purpose prying tool to cut adhesive and/or disconnect cables). In this guide you can see that you only place the iOpener in the microwave. All other tools are packed separately and not in the black fabric.

    Dominik Schnabelrauch -

    @Dominik, thank you very much for the detailed reply! Now it's all clear!

    (And compliments for the very well supplied and assorted store…and tutorials :)

Just FYI, My replacement battery from Huawei doesn’t fit. The cable doesn’t reach the connector. Soldering Required!

excellent tuto, opération menée sur Huawei P9 avec un kit à 15€… pour retirer la batterie, ne pas hésiter à tirer dessus, pour ma part elle commençait à chauffer, j’ai dû y aller franco pour l’évacuer sans rien endommager …

Gilles M Fev - Ответить

Just replaced the battery on my P9. I’ve had it for a little over 2 years and the old battery was really failing. Hoping to get some more life from my device. The replacement went swimmingly. No problems disassembling the device, except that the screen assembly was properly stuck in the body, but my device had been repaired once before, so I think that might have had something to do with it. Excellent guide.

Maciej Maciejewski - Ответить

Perfect! Thanks for the guide. To get out the old battery was not easy. I punctured it and it started smoking. Be sure to empty the battery before the replacement! IMPORTANT!

Thanks a lot!

Kay Kölzig - Ответить

Just finished replacing the battery and everything works good, process went smoothly except the part where I had to separate old battery from the phone because it got stuck to the case but I managed to take it apart by using iopener and a little bit of force. Thanks a lot for the guide it helped me a lot :)

Operazione perfettamente riuscita, con qualche difficoltà nell’estrazione della batteria vecchia, poiché le strisce adesive si erano sfaldate. Grazie per questa ottima guida!

indianathewizard - Ответить

This job is a nightmare and my P9 is very different internally. Also no screws either side of USB on base, so just getting the back off was !&&*. Aborted the mission before I wrecked the %#*@ thing

Andrew Schofield - Ответить

Finally done it but loads more screws needed removing to reconnect the ribbon connectors - these are not slide-on but press-down, so clearance is required. (Had to prise apart and jam open with a blade, bit nerve-racking). Also there were things taped to the old battery that wouldn’t come off; one looks like a supermarket security tag, no idea what it does but it got mangled and so was only partially reinstated

Andrew Schofield - Ответить

First of all congrats on the repair. The thing that looks like a supermarket tag could is an NFC antenna/coil. There is one in the P9 Lite too but not in the P9 we used for the guides which shows the EVA-L29; the EVA-L09 has an NFC antenna. We will update the guides to point that out. Thanks for your note.

Tobias Isakeit -

Thanks Tobias, bit worried about the antenna/coil now, but I never used radio anyway. Needed a metal spatula to scrape out the battery which was pretty well glued in, thankfully it didn’t go up in smoke. Main thing is I got the new battery in and it is holding charge much better than the old one, thanks!
