Use this guide to replace the display assembly on your Motorola Droid Turbo. If your replacement display assembly does not include a earpiece speaker, you'll need to swap your existing one over to it.

  1. Prepare an iOpener and lay it over the rear case to soften the adhesive on securing the rear case to the phone.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to pry the rear case off of the rest of the device.

    • Remove the rear case.

    • The wireless charging coil may try to stick to the rear case, so make sure to remove it from the case before fully separating the rear case from the rest of the device.

    I had to go around the case, starting on the non-button side, around the top and then the other side. This, unfortunately, pulled on the rear case, pressed the power button and turned the device back on. I would suggest starting on the button side and going around.

  3. Remove the midframe bezel.
    • Remove the midframe bezel.

    The next immediate step should be to remove the cable for the battery from the motherboard, lower left corner. That will keep you from accidentally turning the phone on while working with it.

  4. Remove the four Torx T5 screws securing the midframe plate.
    • Remove the four Torx T5 screws securing the midframe plate.

    Step 4, there are also 2 T shaped tabs on the sides locking the mid frame plate. Above them you can see an angled hole where you can insert a paper clip to push them out and up to unlock them.

  5. Remove the midframe.
    • Remove the midframe.

    There's two clips to the left and the right of the midframe. Use a SIM tool and insert them into the holes above the clips, and push the clips out from the inside. Once both have been pushed the midframe is released.

  7. Use a Jimmy to pry under the speaker and lift to remove it. Be sure to place your tool under the entire speaker assembly, against the plastic frame, and pry there.
    • Use a Jimmy to pry under the speaker and lift to remove it.

    • Be sure to place your tool under the entire speaker assembly, against the plastic frame, and pry there.

    • These photos show an incorrect tool position—prying this high up on the speaker assembly may damage it. Place your tool underneath the speaker assembly, not on the edge as shown here.

    • The speaker is secured with some light adhesive, so some force may be required.

    Where the sesamo in the picture is pushing against is actually part of a seperate plastic assembly. You get most torque and the most control by inserting the sesamo between the plastic of the front frame and the assembly the speaker is sitting in, just behind where the knife is in the picture.

    You also need to be very careful where you apply pressure or you’ll break the speaker in half, destroying it…

    When you’re doing this step in reverse to attach the new battery, be sure that you fold over the connector strip like it is in this image so that you’re not trying to snap in the new connector upside-down.

    Yes. I did the same thing myself.

  9. Fold the wireless charging coil away from the battery. Fold the wireless charging coil away from the battery.
    • Fold the wireless charging coil away from the battery.

    Pry the nub at the top of the wireless charger from the battery first, then use a playing card to slide between the battery and the wireless charger.

    rkarnes1988 - Ответить

    Actually, now that I think about it, you don't need to do this step at all.

    rkarnes1988 -

    My charging coil was really on there. I used two of the blue opening picks to separate the adhesive. Playing card sounds like a good idea too.

    FYI if you damage the flex harness it will prevent the phone from charging.

    This step isn't necessary, the mobo comes out even without removing the battery.

    rkarnes1988 - Ответить

    This is in the battery replacement tutorial, why would you want to remove the MOBO along with the battery? I’d consider the battery removal quite essential if the goal is to replace it.

    Chris - Ответить

    Only pry from the near sides - do not reach underneath to pry the far side under. You’ll damage the black coating over the metal plate on the motherboard…

    kempenbills - Ответить

    so.. I did this. How do I fix it?

    andie.shop.xd -

    What is the black coating for?

    Denny -

    Gently pry evenly along both long sides of the battery when removing. The factory adhesive, at least on my phone, was applied in two strips near both edges beneath the long sides of the battery (not applied near the center or along short sides of battery). I made the mistake of working one side loose, thinking I could just slowly lift the battery free of the remaining adhesive on the opposite side. The battery was coming out but actually began bending near the opposite edge because the adhesive held tight. I finished up by gently prying the side still held by adhesive and the battery came free. I did not damage the black coating on the mobo beneath the battery.

This has a bunch of unecessary steps and is missing so,e just kinda bricked my phone thanks to this

fake name - Ответить

Yep. It repeats a bunch of steps, and seems to switch from replacing the display to replacing the motherboard. :(

Richard Klein -

has anyone ever had the buttons break on this phone? i know on my old droid maxx one little mistake when putting the board in the metal frame was enough to break the volume buttons.

Dudefoxlive - Ответить

You don’t need to remove the battery from the board…the whole thing comes up as one.

Jason Stewart - Ответить

What if your screen is glitchy after the install?

Help me J - Ответить

Tried pulling up the display connection to the board, it pulled the pins up from the board with it. What's up with that?

Levy Rippy - Ответить

Between the guide and the comments I successfully changed out my screen/digitizer..

Sourced a bad one with a green bar, but the process was correct and straight forward.
