If the front camera on your Moto G4 is no longer working, follow this step by step guide to replace it yourself.

  1. Insert a fingernail or a spudger into the notch on the bottom edge of the phone, near the charge port.
    • Insert a fingernail or a spudger into the notch on the bottom edge of the phone, near the charge port.

    • Gently twist or pry to open a small gap between the back cover and the body of the phone.

    • While keeping your tool (or fingernail) inserted into the gap between the back cover and the body of the phone, slide it around the corner to begin loosening the plastic clips holding the cover in place.

    • Use a T3 Torx driver to remove the nineteen identical 3.1 mm screws securing the midframe.

    In my kit, the T3 Torx bit came in the ‘repair part’ box, while a T5 Torx bit was in the ‘repair tools’ box.

    • Insert a thin tool (such as one of your tweezer tips) under the red and black battery wires, and slide it underneath the battery connector.

    • Gently pry straight up to disconnect the battery.

    • Pry only from the side where the wires attach to the connector—if you pry anywhere else, you may break the socket.

    • During reassembly, align the connector in its socket and then press straight down to reconnect it, wiggling slightly as you press to help it seat correctly.

    • It's not necessary to remove the battery in order to replace the front-facing camera; you can safely ignore the fact that the battery is missing in these images.

    • Use your spudger to pry up the front-facing camera and make sure it separates safely from the frame.

    • Peel back and remove any tape covering the front-facing camera's flex cable connector.

    • Pry up with your spudger or other ESD-safe tool to flip open the locking flap on the front-facing camera's ZIF connector.

    • Gently pull the camera's flex cable free from the ZIF socket.
