Follow this guide to replace the display assembly for the Motorola Moto G5. This includes the digitizer assembly as well as the display frame.

Your replacement part should look like this. You will be transferring components from the previous display frame onto the new one. If your part did not come with a display frame, you will need to complete additional steps, which are not covered in this guide.

For your safety, discharge your existing battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair.

Thanks. These tips, plus the Moto G5 Plus guide solved my problem. The replacement I purchased was only for the LCD (needed to heat and remove the glass after disassembling the whole phone). Again, thanks.

Thanks a lot for this guide! A few things I noticed while I was doing it:

-There’s no screws to remove on one of the red circles on the bottom right (it’s not a hole for a screw!)

-The front speakers are not in the right position in the picture. I followed that, and I didn’t had any sound anymore. Flipping it fixed the problem.

Otherwise I’m really glad you made that tutorial, thank you very much !!!
