    • 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 screen of the Google Pixel 7 is held in place by plastic clips and adhesive.

    • During the removal procedure, make sure to insert your opening picks in the right position to avoid separating the screen from its safety frame instead of the phone assembly.

    • Only insert the pick up to ~3.5 mm during the removal procedure to avoid damaging the internals and to avoid interfering with the plastic clips.

    • There are several plastic clips around the whole screen. In case your opening pick gets blocked during the screen removal procedure it means you inserted your pick too deep underneath the screen.

    • 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.

  4. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 4, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 4, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 4, 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.

  5. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 5, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 5, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 5, 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.

  6. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Loosen the display adhesive: passo 6, immagine 1 di 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the screen to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 3 minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the device. The edge should feel slightly too hot to the touch.

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

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

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

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

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • To avoid damaging your phone, don't insert your pick more than ~2.5 mm as you separate the screen adhesive. Note the following areas:

    • The screen cable is a little less than halfway up the left edge of the phone. Be very careful here to avoid tearing the cable.

    • There are many spring contacts around the perimeter of the phone. Be very careful in these areas to avoid bending the contacts.

  9. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Slice the bottom edge adhesive: passo 9, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Slice the bottom edge adhesive: passo 9, immagine 2 di 2
    • 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.

  10. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 10, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement: passo 10, 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.

    • 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 and to release the plastic clips.

    • 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 (~2.5 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.

    • Insert a fifth opening pick and slide it along the right edge of the phone to slice the remaining adhesive and release the right plastic clips.

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

  14. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Open up the phone assembly: passo 14, immagine 1 di 3 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Open up the phone assembly: passo 14, immagine 2 di 3 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Open up the phone assembly: passo 14, immagine 3 di 3
    • Lift the right edge of the screen up and towards the left side of the device, like opening a book.

    • Don't twist the screen or move it too far away from the frame to avoid straining or damaging the flex cable.

    • Rest the screen upside down and parallel to the frame before continuing.

  15. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Release the display cable bracket: passo 15, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Release the display cable bracket: passo 15, immagine 2 di 2
    • The display cable bracket sits tightly and requires some force to release it.

    • Insert one arm of a pair of tweezers into the opening at the upper end of the display cable bracket.

    • Push the bracket inwards and pry up to release it.

  16. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Remove the display cable bracket: passo 16, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Remove the display cable bracket: passo 16, immagine 2 di 2
    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the display cable bracket by pulling it from underneath the midframe and in direction of the cameras.

  17. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Disconnect the display cable: passo 17, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Disconnect the display cable: passo 17, immagine 2 di 2
    • Use a spudger to disconnect the display flex cable by prying the connector straight up from its socket.

    • 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.

  18. Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Separate the screen from the phone assembly: passo 18, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel 7 Screen Replacement, Separate the screen from the phone assembly: passo 18, immagine 2 di 2
    • Remove the screen.

    • During reassembly:

    • If you replaced your screen, check the front-facing camera hole and the sensor cutout on your replacement screen, and remove any remaining liners.

    • 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 in case you're using a pre-cut adhesive card.

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

This guide was excellent. And the most tedious bit of the repair was removing the remaining adhesive before installing the new screen. Very easy repair for anyone with some patience.

If the fingerprint unlock does not work after this, you may get a message on the lock screen indicating that you need to go to a google website to fix it.

What you actually need to do is:

o Install the Google USB driver for Windows from here: https://developer.android.com/studio/run...

o Put your phone in fast-boot (turn off, then turn on while holding volume down)

o Connect the Pixel to your PC

o Using chrome, visit this site, which will reset the fingerprint reader: https://pixelrepair.withgoogle.com/udfps

I had to reboot twice after this to actually get it to work, but it's all good now.

Thank you for this. Since the message on the phone is unhelpfull, this info should really be added to the manual.

Vincent van Leijden -

Thank you! No driver needed on a Mac (as it says at the first link.) Just go to the withgoogle pixelrepair page and follow the instructions. Worked on the first restart for me.

Chris K. -

Ohhh thank you so much for this, I was about to give up on the fingerprint reader ha

Joshua Chandler -

The above instructions are not complete. These are the full instructions that work for me:

1.Before you turn your phone off, go to the developer options and enable USB debugging.

Go to: Settings, About phone then tap Build number 7 times.

2. Go here Get the Google USB Driver | Android Developers and download the google USB zip file (this is for windows BTW)

3. Unzip however you want it

4. Open the folder usb_Driver and rightclick "android_winusb" and install

5. To make sure it installed, connect your pixel (with USB debugging still enabled) to your PC and open "device manager". You should see "Android Devices > Android Composite ADB Interface".

6. Disconnect pixel from PC

7. Go here Google Fingerprint Calibration website and follow the instructions.
