    • Once the adhesive has been adequately loosened, pull back slowly on the suction cup to remove the back panel of the phone.

    • The remaining adhesive should be strong enough to hold the phone together tightly upon reassembly. However, once opened the water resistance of your phone has been compromised.

  5. Now that the back is removed, the battery is visible. You now have access to the battery and its connecting components. With the plastic opening tool, gently remove the connector from the motherboard. Use your fingers to peel the rest of the adhesive away from the phone.

  7. Slide the spudger firmly along the right side of the battery, loosening the adhesive between the casing and battery. Flex cables run vertically down the phone underneath the battery and can be damaged easily. Make sure to only place the spudger in the indicated area. Insert the spudger in the bottom-center to further loosen the adhesive. Carefully separate the battery from the phone by sliding the spudger vertically underneath the battery and prying up. This may take some time and work as the adhesive is very strong.

Aft er replacing 2 (so called) waterproof phones due to water damage; I kept my Xperia phone away from water. Sony's claim the phone is weatherproof is a joke.

I found that a heavy plastic guitar pick (1.0mm or thicker) worked well as a replacement for the plastic opening tools
