Use this guide to replace the rear camera in a Pixel 2 XL.

  1. If your display glass is cracked, tape over the glass to prevent bodily harm and further breakage. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond. Apply a suction cup as close to the SIM slot edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • Apply a suction cup as close to the SIM slot edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

  2. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case. This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener,  heat gun, or hair dryer. This requires a significant amount of force and patience.

Is there a guide for replacing the lens cover? I bought the replacement camera and lens cover, but not sure how to replace the cover. I may not even need a new camera, since my camera is just a little blurry. Any help would be appreciated!

Unfortunately we don’t have a guide for the camera lens cover yet. It’s just adhered to the back of the phone, so you should be able to heat it and carefully pry it up, or push it out from the inside of the phone. Before installing the new lens cover make sure you scrape all the old adhesive off of the phone and clean adhesion surface with isopropyl alcohol. Then you should be able to use the provided adhesive to install the new cover. Try not to touch the clear part of the new cover since fingerprints might be tough to clean off.

Also, I’d probably try just replacing the lens cover first and then testing the camera (without sealing the phone closed) and see if that fixes your issue before you replace the whole camera. Hope that helps, and good luck with the repair!
