Motorola W220 disassembly

Motorola W220 disassembly
Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver

Two plastic stickers cover the first two screws you need to remove. In the photo below you can see the screws after the two plastic stickers have been removed.

Remove the two screws then peel away the Motorola badge at the top of the phone. It's stuck on with double sided tape. Remove the two screws you can now see.

Starting near the hinge, run your fingernail all the way round the join of the housing.

You should now have the top half of the housing removed, allowing access to the LCD screen.

Detach the ribbon cable from the screen. Simply pull it and it'll slide out of it's socket.

You can now lift the LCD screen from the phone and replace with new. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
