    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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 Rear Camera 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 Rear Camera Replacement, Slice the adhesive: passo 7, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 6 Rear Camera 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.

    • 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 Rear Camera Replacement: passo 10, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 6 Rear Camera 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.

Perfect guide, and incredibly simple fix, especially with all the pre-cut adhesive replacements from the full kit.

Hello.  After replacing the camera, it did not turn on and the camera application crashed with an error.  The old camera also no longer worked.  I bought another camera and the symptom recurred.  In the workshop, the connector on the motherboard was checked (healthy), they could not help with anything else.  Perhaps you can suggest something.  p.s.  re-flashing was done many times, did not help

Just great !!! My wife broke her rear back camera glass and scratched one of the lenses. The quote from the repair store was 200EUR+. I ordered the full kit with the tools and I can only say its 10/10. From the instructions to the tools provided everything worked great. Camera worked like a charm. Replacement took like 40 minutes. The only problem I had was cleaning the old adhesive from the phone which took another hour. Overal I will always check if there is a repair kit from ifixit in the future if I need to repair something on my own.
