  • Remove rear camera bracket.

  • Release connector, but take care not to damage the electronic components next to the connector. It is best to access the connector from the bottom (battery side), and not from the side as the picture shows.

  • Remove motherboard.

  • Lift the red cover off the vibrating motor, and lift the motor with tweezers. The motor should stay attached to the cabling to the motherboard.

The cable to the vibrating electromotor snapped. Maybe a little warning about that? Sits next to the loudspeaker. Or that it's important to lift the other short side first?

Don't forget to transfer the volume, power and camera silicone pads if these are not included on the replacement and the charging port. Needs to be done at steps 6 or 7.

This is potentially much more complicated, and fiddly, than the guide suggests - depending on where you get the midframe from, there are a number of additional parts that need moving across to the new one - specifically the rubber seals from the buttons, the small microphone channel near the bottom mic, the plastic defuser for the LED next to the headphone socket and the front camera holder. Removing the lower speaker from the midframe is likely to break it, simply down to the glue being used to hold it in. It's worth making sure you have a replacement to hand as they're fairly cheap.

Additionally to re-emphasise, be very careful with removing the mother board, the vibration motor lead is very delicate and easy to tear. Do make sure it's completely freed up before trying to remove the board!
