Motorola U6 PEBL disassembly

Motorola U6 PEBL disassembly
Tools required: Torx 3 screwdriver, Torx 6 screwdriver

After removing your back cover and battery, remove the four torx 6 screws you see. (When reassembling, the gold screws go at the bottom and the silver screws go back at the top)

With the four screws removed you can now remove the battery compartment

With the battery slot removed you have access to one of the ribbons (indicated below by the screwdriver) which connects the screen to the main body of the phone. Unclip this (it fits like a plug and socket).

You'll now have the phone in two parts, like below

Now remove the two torx 3 screws at the bottom of the main display. You can then remove the display part which covers the LCD. This is held on by clips. You need to run your fingernail along the edge of the housing to release these. This will release the display up to the point where you see two metal parts (left and right of the Motorola text). The top part of the display is held on with double sided tape. To remove the display requires some force to unstick the tape but be careful not to bend this part back and snap it. Just try to ease it open and it will eventually unstick

You now have the phone in two parts, like below

Remove the display and replace with new. Make sure to clip the ribbon from the casing (you can see it in the picture above and it will have unclipped itself when you remove the display) back in on the new screen when putting the phone back together
Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly
