Nokia 6600 Slide disassembly

Tools required: Torx 5 screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the six screws you can see.

Run something like a credit card under the keypad to release it.

With the keypad removed your phone should look like below. Remove the two screws you can see. Then pull the housing in the direction shown by the arrows to release the two clips that hold the circuit board in place.

The battery compartment should no be loose. Lift it away from the rest of the phone, as shown.

Your phone should now look like below. The circled connector needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug.

You can now lift the circuit board away from the rest of the phone.

Run your plastic tool all the way around the join of the front cover to release it.

Remove the part shown below. You can either pull it away with your fingernails or lever it off with something like a small flat head screwdriver.

You can now remove the front cover, as shown below.

The metal frame should also be loose and can be removed. Another ribbon connector needs to be unplugged like the one in the earlier stages of the guide.

You now need to slide your plastic tool under the screen. It'll be stuck down with double sided tape so a little force is required.

You should now have the LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
