Motorola RAZR V3 disassembly

Motorola RAZR V3 disassembly
Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver

Remove the four rubber stoppers surrounding the screen to reveal four screws. Remove these screws.

You can now remove the front cover. To do this, use a credit card to lever the cover up. The cover clips on and the levering motion will unclip it. Start at the top, then unclip the cover at the bottom, then both sides.

You should now have the front cover removed, like below.

Remove the rubber part which surrounds the camera. You should be able to lever it out with a fingernail or pen lid.

Now detach the camera from the phone. Simply pull the ribbon away from the phone to release it.

Now unplug the other ribbon, indicated by the screwdriver, below. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.

The image below shows the ribbon unplugged.

The lens, shown below, is held to the phone with double sided tape. Pry it off. It will be stuck on well so some force is required.

You now need to peel the brown flexi cable part away from the edges of the screen. Again, it is stuck on with double sided tape.

The screen will now be free from the rest of the phone.

Now remove the brown flexi cable entirely and you are left with just the LCD screen. Note that the inner and outer screens are attached together so whether you are replacing the inner or outer screen you need the same one part. You should now stick the flexi cable onto the new screen. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
