Use this guide to replace the screen assembly for your Nexus 5X. The assembly comes with the screen mounted onto the frame.

You will need to transfer all the parts from your old frame that weren’t included on your replacement part.

In case your display is cracked—to protect your eyes from glass shreds and to get a better grip to open the phone, tape over the screen.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. If your battery is swollen, do not heat your phone. Swollen batteries can be very dangerous, so wear eye protection and exercise due caution, or take it to a professional if you're not sure how to proceed.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

    • Try your best not to deform the battery during the following removal process. Soft-shell lithium-ion batteries can leak dangerous chemicals, catch fire, or even explode if damaged. Do not use excessive force or pry at the battery with metal tools.

    • Insert the flat end of a spudger under the bottom left corner of the battery and gently pry upwards.

    • The adhesive is only located beneath the edges of the battery so there's no need to pry beneath its center.

    • If you are having trouble prying up the battery, the adhesive may not be loose enough. You can apply some isopropyl alcohol under each corner of the battery and allow it to penetrate for several minutes to help weaken the adhesive.

    • Before installing a new battery remove any remaining adhesive from the phone, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth.

    • Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the phone at the places where the old adhesive was located, not directly onto the battery. Press the new battery firmly into place for 5-10 seconds.
