Follow this guide to replace the display or screen adhesive for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. This guide covers how to install a three-piece adhesive set as well as a full set.

This procedure is meant to be used in conjunction with the Galaxy S7 Edge display assembly replacement guide.

  1. Remove all traces of adhesive and debris from the phone frame's perimeter. Clean the adhesion surface with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (over 90%) and wipe it clean with a lint-free cloth. If glue or glass remnants are left behind, the new display will not mount correctly and may be damaged. Do not remove the  recessed strip of adhesive trapped under the fingerprint sensor cable. If there is adhesive adhered on top of this strip, carefully separate and peel the top adhesive off.
