Introduzione

Use this guide to replace the primary loudspeaker in your Pixel 2 XL.

  1. Insert a SIM card eject tool or a paperclip into the small hole in the SIM card tray, located on the left edge of the phone, opposite of the power and volume buttons.
    • Insert a SIM card eject tool or a paperclip into the small hole in the SIM card tray, located on the left edge of the phone, opposite of the power and volume buttons.

    • Press firmly to eject the tray.

  2. Remove the SIM card tray from the phone.
    • Remove the SIM card tray from the phone.

      • The SIM card will fall out of the tray easily.

    • When reinserting the SIM card, ensure that it is in the proper orientation relative to the tray.

    • 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.

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

    • 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.

    • In the following steps, extra caution is required in certain areas to avoid damage to the phone:

      • Do not insert the pick more than 0.25 inches (6 MM) into the bottom edge of the phone. If the pick contacts the folded portion of the OLED panel, it can damage the display.

      • Do not cut along the left edge; there are delicate display cables that can be damaged.

      • Only make very shallow cuts in the upper left corner; prying deeply can damage the front-facing camera.

    • Slide the opening pick down the right side of the phone to separate the display adhesive.

    • In the following steps, use the flat of the opening pick, rather than a corner, to cut. This will help prevent inserting the pick too deeply.

    • Slide the opening pick around the lower-right corner and along the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Reinsert the pick at the top-right corner of the phone, and slide it around the corner and along the top edge of the phone.

    • Gently lift the display from the right side of the phone, opening it like a book.

      • If the display doesn't readily lift, do some extra prying to separate the last of the adhesive.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the phone's motherboard.

    • Use the corner of an opening tool to pry up the digitizer cable connector cover.

    • Pry carefully to avoid damaging the cable underneath, or losing the cover itself.

    • Remove the connector cover.

    • Use the point of a spudger to lift the digitizer cable connector up and out of its socket on the motherboard.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • If any part of your screen doesn't respond to touch after your repair, re-seat this connector, making sure it clicks fully into place and that there's no dust or other obstruction in the socket.

    • Use tweezers to remove any tape from the display connector cover.

    • Insert the point of a spudger into the small hole on the edge of the display connector cover.

    • Use the spudger to pry the cover out of its recess.

    • Remove the connector cover.

    • Use the flat edge of a spudger to lift the display cable connector up from its socket.

    • Before installing a new display, it's very important to remove all traces of the old adhesive from the frame, while taking special care to remove any small glass fragments.

    • After removing all traces of glue and glass from the frame, clean the adhesion areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (at least 90%). This will ensure a better seal for the new display and adhesive.

    • The best way to secure the new screen is with a sheet of custom-cut double-sided tape, but high-adhesion double-sided tape, like Tesa 61395, will work too. Apply the tape to the edges of the frame where the old adhesive was, align the screen, and press it into place.

    • Remove eleven 3.8 mm Phillips screws securing the midframe.

    • Insert an opening tool into the notch in the midframe near the volume buttons and pry the midframe up and away from the rest of the phone.

    • Remove the midframe.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to disconnect the battery connector.

    • Use the point of a spudger to disconnect the front-facing camera connector.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to disconnect the right Active Edge sensor connector.

    • Use the point of a spudger to disconnect the fingerprint sensor connector.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to disconnect the left Active Edge sensor connector.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to disconnect the charging assembly connector.

    • Use the point of a spudger to disconnect the front-facing sensor assembly connector.

    • Make sure all the cables and connectors are clear of the board, and use the flat edge of a spudger to gently lift the bottom of the motherboard.

    • The narrow part of the motherboard is very fragile. If it starts to bend when you lift, stop and make sure there isn't anything holding the board down. The board should lift up without any resistance.

    • Holding the wide part of the motherboard near the SIM card slot, carefully slide the board toward the bottom of the phone while lifting it out of the phone.

    • Remove the motherboard.

    • When reinstalling the motherboard, move all the cables and connectors out of the way of the board and make sure all connectors are aligned with their respective sockets.

    • Slide the point of a spudger under the lower left side of the loudspeaker and slowly pry the speaker assembly up from the phone.

    • Remove the loudspeaker from the phone.

Conclusione

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
