Tools required: Small flat head screwdriver or similar tool

Slide the phone open. Release the front cover cover by lifting it up, starting where the arrow indicates, then run your fingernail along the edge of the housing to unclip it.

Your phone should now be in two parts, as shown below.

Lever the LCD out of the phone with a small flat head screwdriver or something similar. The LCD will still be attached by a ribbon (see the next stage).

The LCD screen is attached to the phone by a ribbon which attached like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.

You should now have the LCD screen removed and you can replace it with your new LCD. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly. Please note, when you put the front cover back on, make sure you start at the bottom, making sure the plastic lugs slot into place before pushing the rest of the cover on.
