Welcome to another How to tutorial guys! Todays we'll explain how to change screen on your Google Pixel 5. This repair is one of the easier repairs when it comes to changing screens. You will need around 30minutes in order to finish it. Grab a Google Pixel 5 Replacement OLED Glass Screen Assembly and some tools and lets dive right into it!
1) Remove the front panel
In order to lift the screen we will need an suction cup, hard plastic picks, and some sort of a heat gun (a hair dryer will also work). The screen itself is glued to the frame so we will use the heat gun to heat the outer edges of the display and loosen up the adhesive.
Next apply the suction cup to the screen as close to the heated edge as it is possible. Pull onto it and insert a hard plastic pick into the gap. Slide pick around all the edges of the phone to remove the adhesive and simply open the screen like a book lifting it from the right side.
2) Disconnect the screen
Use tweezers to grip and push the clip in towards the connector to unlatch the screen connector cover. Remove the cover and use a tip of a flat spudger to disconnect the screen.
3) Remove the screen
Simply separate the screen from the remaining parts.
4) Reassemble everything with the new screen
Your Pixel 5 is completely disassembled. Now take your new screen and reassemble your phone by following this guide in reverse order, and then test everything up to make sure you did everything properly.
Test everything up
Congratulations, you changed your Pixel 5 screen all by yourself. Now just test a few things to make sure everything is working properly:
-Test the brightness of the display.
-Test the touchscreen, select an app, and drag it all around the display. If it is following your finger everything is fine.
