    • Allow your battery to drain below 25% before starting this repair. A charged battery may catch fire if damaged.

    • Fully power off your phone and unplug any cables.

  2. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: passo 2, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: passo 2, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: passo 2, immagine 3 di 3
    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • If your screen is cracked, cover it with a layer of clear packing tape to help the suction cup adhere.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Slide the arms over either the left or right edge of your phone.

    • Position the suction cups near the bottom edge of the phone—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Squeeze the cups together to apply suction.

    • If you find that the surface of your phone is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, you can use tape to create a grippier surface.

  3. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 3, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 3, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 3, immagine 3 di 3
    • Pull the blue handle forward to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

  4. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 4, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 4, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 4, immagine 3 di 3
    • Heat an iOpener and thread it through the arms of the Anti-Clamp.

    • You can also use a hair dryer or heat gun—but extreme heat can damage the display and/or internal battery, so proceed with care.

    • Fold the iOpener so it lays on the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen frame when the Anti-Clamp creates a large enough gap.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle clockwise half a turn.

    • Don't crank more than a half a turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next two steps.

  5. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Loosen the display adhesive: passo 5, immagine 1 di 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the screen to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least three minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the device.

    • Once the screen is warm to the touch, apply a suction handle to the bottom edge of the screen.

    • If your screen is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction handle to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction handle. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction handle to the screen.

    • Lift the screen, including its safety frame, with the suction handle to create a small gap between the screen and the phone assembly.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap between the screen frame and the phone assembly.

    • Make sure to insert your opening pick in the right position to avoid separating the screen from its safety frame instead of the phone assembly.

    • Slide the opening pick to the bottom right corner of the screen to slice its adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in place to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  7. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Slice the adhesive: passo 7, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Slice the adhesive: passo 7, immagine 2 di 2
    • Insert a second opening pick at the bottom edge and slide it to the bottom left corner of the screen to slice the adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in place to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • The screen of the Google Pixel 6 is not only held in place by adhesive but also small plastic clips. If your opening pick gets blocked during the screen removal procedure, it means you inserted your pick too deep underneath the screen. Only insert the tip of the opening pick (3-4 mm) when slicing the display adhesive.

    • Insert a third opening pick underneath the bottom left corner of the screen.

    • Slide the opening pick along the left edge of the screen to slice the adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in the top left corner to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  9. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 9, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 9, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 9, immagine 3 di 3
    • If the adhesive becomes hard to cut, it has most likely cooled down. Use your iOpener or heat gun for 1-2 minutes to reheat it.

    • When you slice near the front facing camera, insert only the tip of the opening pick (2-3 mm) to avoid damaging or smearing the camera.

    • Insert a fourth opening pick at the top left corner of the screen.

    • Slide the opening pick along the top edge of the phone to slice the adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in the top right corner to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  10. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 10, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement: passo 10, immagine 2 di 2
    • Insert a fifth opening pick and slide it along the right edge of the phone to slice the remaining adhesive.

    • Do not try to remove the display all the way yet, the screen is still connected to the phone assembly.

    • During reassembly:

    • If you replaced the screen, check the front-facing camera hole on the screen and remove any remaining protective liners in it.

    • Remember to reinstall the display cable bracket.

    • This is a good point to test your phone before sealing it up. Temporarily connect your screen, power on your phone, and make sure it works as expected. Before continuing with reassembly, power off your phone and disconnect the screen.

    • Follow this guide if you're using custom-cut adhesives for your device.

    • Follow this guide if you're using a pre-cut adhesive card.

    • If you're installing a new screen, follow this guide to calibrate the fingerprint sensor.

  15. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Loosen the graphite film adhesive: passo 15, immagine 1 di 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener or a heat gun to the rear glass to loosen the adhesive underneath the graphite films on top of the battery. Apply the iOpener for at least two minutes.

    • Don't apply heat directly onto the battery. It is susceptible to heat damage and could cause a thermal event.

  22. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Apply high concentration isopropyl alcohol: passo 22, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Apply high concentration isopropyl alcohol: passo 22, immagine 2 di 2
    • Adhesive is only present underneath the top and bottom areas of the battery and not underneath the center. The see-through plastic strip around the center of the battery is not especially useful during the removal procedure. Feel free to remove it for easier handling by opening its adhesive seal and pulling it out from underneath the battery.

    • Lift your phone assembly to a ~45° angle.

    • This helps to spread the isopropyl alcohol evenly in the following step. You can hold the phone in one hand and apply the alcohol with the other, or secure your suction handle to the rear glass and use its handle as a stand for your phone.

    • Apply a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol into the gap between the motherboard and the top-left and bottom-left corner of the battery.

  23. Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 23, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 23, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 6 Battery Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 23, immagine 3 di 3
    • Insert an opening pick into the gap between the top edge of the battery and the motherboard.

    • Use your opening pick to pry up the battery by tilting your pick downwards and widening the gap between the battery and the motherboard to create enough space to insert a plastic card.

    • Peel the battery off the remaining adhesive.

    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reinstall a damaged or deformed battery, as doing so is a potential safety hazard.

    • Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the device at the places where the old adhesive was located, not directly onto the battery. Press the new battery firmly into place.

    • During reassembly, temporarily reconnect the battery to the motherboard to help align it correctly. Disconnect the battery after it is seated.

Conclusione

If possible, turn on your device and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing.

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 these instructions in reverse order. During reassembly apply new adhesive where necessary after cleaning the relevant areas with isopropyl alcohol (>90%).

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery after completing this guide.

Something this guide should add is when using the card to pop the battery adhesive, keep as much to the edge in the middle as you can. The qi charger is covered in that graphite like tape and that is easily damaged. You can see that a little bit in the pictures where it was damaged.

If you have the kit, pay attention to the adhesives. The battery already has adhesive attached, the clear plastic pieces are the battery spacers (look at old battery for positioning), and the graphite tapes match the old. Be careful that the plastics already on the battery (the little tab handle thing), the spacers, and the graphite tape don't overlap.

My original battery started to expand and even lifted up the screen! I had to replace the battery urgently.
I used the genuine Google replacement parts sold through iFixit. Everything worked as expected. I can only recommend using the Pixel Phone Series due to its good repairability and the availability of replacement parts and guides through iFixit. (Availability of Custom ROMs such as GrapheneOS and others is another great bonus :) )
All in all: Magnificent guide for a great device. Thank you guys!

Great guide - than you for your effort Dominik.

My battery had swollen so it was already popping off the screen for me so getting the screen off wasn't so hard :) For me the trickiest bit was getting the battery out - the adhesive was really hard to unstick. Had to do a three or four attempts with the alcohol - take your time and it will come out, don't force it.
Good luck!

My battery had also become swollen and the top right of the screen was lifting. Used the iFixit battery replacement kit and the anti-clamp device opener. For the battery removal, I used the isopropyl alcohol, but I also used the included suction cup as a stand and had the heated iOpener on the back of the phone. I think this helped loosen the battery as well.

This guide and tools made this job really easy and not frustrating at all. Screen was undamaged and worked perfectly after the battery was replaced (I did check it before it was all screwed down/resealed).

Thanks for the great guide and kit!

As many others my battery had started to push up on my screen and swell. I've always been a fan of iFixit, but never been able to afford any of their products, however, the Pixel 6 battery replacement kit is worth the purchase, it came with all the parts and tools needed to replace the battery, I didn't need to use the iOpener as the screen was already apart and IPA helped to remove the battery, I purchased the graphite tape separately as it didnt look like it came with it, but it did, I also didn't need to use the battery spacer, as the battery came with them applied, but I dint know how to use them. great tutorial and easy to follow,
