Introduzione

This guide shows how to remove and replace a worn out battery for your Pixel 3 XL.

For your safety, discharge your battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

Replacing the battery requires un-gluing the wireless charging coil from it and transferring the coil to a replacement battery.

  1. Heat an iOpener and apply it to the right edge of the back panel for a minute. A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage. While you wait, note the following areas on the back panel:

    • While you wait, note the following areas on the back panel:

    • Strong adhesive—there are large patches of adhesive near the bottom of the phone.

    • Fingerprint sensor cable—be careful not to slice through the cable as you pry

  2. Apply a suction cup to the heated edge of the back panel, as close to the edge as possible. Pull up on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap. Depending on the age of your phone, this may be difficult. If you are having trouble, apply heat to the edge and try again.

    • Depending on the age of your phone, this may be difficult. If you are having trouble, apply heat to the edge and try again.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

  3. Slide the opening pick along the right edge to slice through the adhesive. The adhesive gums up and becomes hard to slice once it cools. If that happens, re-apply heat to the edge to make slicing easier. Once you have sliced through the edge, leave an opening pick in the seam to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

  5. Use an opening pick to slice around the bottom right corner and continue along the bottom edge of the phone. Work slowly as you slice around the corner to prevent the panel from cracking. If the slicing becomes hard, re-apply heat. Leave a pick in the edge to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

  6. Continue heating and slicing the remaining edges of the phone. Be careful as you slice along the left edge of the phone. If your pick feels like it's stuck near the top, you may have snagged the fingerprint sensor. Retract the pick out of the seam slightly and try again. Be sure to cut through the thick portions of adhesive near the bottom and right edge of the phone.

  8. Swing the right edge of the back panel upwards and rest the flipped panel along the left side of the phone. Be sure to maintain slack on the fingerprint sensor cable and prevent it from being pinched. During reassembly, this is a good point to power on your phone and test all functions before sealing it up. Be sure to power your phone back down completely before you continue working.

    • Remove the wireless charging coil.

    • To install a replacement coil:

    • Be sure to clean off the battery surface of any adhesive residue. Be very careful not to puncture the battery.

    • Connect the wireless coil connector to its motherboard socket. This ensures that the coil is properly aligned.

    • Peel off any adhesive backing on the replacement coil.

    • Lay the coil on top of the battery and firmly press it into position.

  21. Insert the point of a spudger into the gap along the top edge of the battery. Slowly slide the point along the gap to lift up and detach the insulating tape from the battery. Fold the tape away from the battery.

    • Insert the flat end of an opening pick into the gap above the battery, behind a yellow pull tab.

    • Wedge the pick firmly underneath the battery. The pick will serve as a buffer for the adhesive strip as well as a prying point.

  24. Pull on the yellow adhesive pull tab with slow steady force. Try your best to pull it as shallow of an angle (vs. straight up) as possible. As you pull on the adhesive tab, maintain pressure on the opening pick to wedge it underneath the battery as much as possible.

    • As you pull on the adhesive tab, maintain pressure on the opening pick to wedge it underneath the battery as much as possible.

    • If the adhesive feels stuck, you can apply a few drops of adhesive remover or high concentration isopropyl alcohol into the gap to help loosen the battery. Doing this will most likely loosen both strips at once.

    • Repeat the process with the second adhesive pull tab.

  25. Remove the battery.
    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

    • To install a replacement battery:

    • Remove any remaining adhesive from the battery well.

    • Temporarily re-connect the battery connector to its motherboard socket. This ensures that the battery will be properly aligned.

    • Apply pre-cut adhesive or double-sided Tesa tape to the battery well.

    • Lay the battery in the phone and press it firmly in place.

    • Disconnect the battery connector from its motherboard socket and resume reassembly.

Conclusione

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Then use your device until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

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

Hey. After installing ney battery and new usb port my Pixel 3 has problems with microphones. Its only works with phoning via speakers. can you help me ?

Hi Kevin,

Assuming that you did not remove the motherboard (which houses a mic), it sounds like something may be off with the daughterboard, which surrounds the USB port and houses the other microphone. I would suggest carefully disconnecting and re-seating the daughterboard connectors, and making sure that the microphone is aligned to the port.
