    • Use the point of a spudger to lift the vibration motor connector up out of the socket on the I/O board.

      • Be very careful to pry only on the connector under the red and black cables, not on the socket itself.

    Do not pull as shown o the picture!! Otherwise you will tear of the connector as well (actually as seen on the picture!!). You have to pull upwards so the vibration motor is unplugged an the socket stays attached to the board. If you do as shown on the picture you won't be able to reuse the charging board. Or at least I wouldn’t know how to re-attach a new vibration motor to the board as shown….

    I just replaced the usb charging socket/board since my Moto G5 stopped charging. In my case I did not need the board anymore, so I could have just pulled off the vibration motor as shown above. I suggest, however, to keep the socket for the vibration motor in place by simply pulling upwards.

    (But even if you broke the charging board - the replacement board cost me €10 ;-))

    The procedure has been updated!

    Oh boy that was very incorrect procedure! I cropped the image and changed the text to hopefully be more clear. Thanks for catching that!
