Motorola U9 disassembly

Motorola U9 disassembly
Tools required: Torx 3 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Open the flip then slide your plastic tool around the edge of the plastic lens to remove it.

Your phone should now look like below. Remove the four screws you can see. Note that the two at the bottom are black and the two at the top are silver and these need to go back in the right place as they're slightly different lengths.

Run your plastic tool around the join of the top cover in order to release it.

Your phone should now look like below.

  • Lever the metal frame off at the two points shown below. Do the same on the other side.
  • You should now have the metal frame removed. Three ribbons now need disconnecting. The two small ribbons have a foam sticker on which needs to be removed. Then note the black latches. Flick the black latches up and then side each ribbon out. You can then lift the green circuit board away from the phone. You'll need to waggle it around until it slides over the small screen.

    Your phone should now look like below. Lever the screen out at the points circled below.

    You should now have the screen removed.

    Slide your plastic tool behind the small screen to separate it from the large screen. You'll need some double sided tape to stick this back down.

    You should now have both screens removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
