Once you have removed the old digitiser, you will likely have a lot of adhesive left on the shell, where the touch screen sits. Remove all of it as we will be placing new adhesive in there.
Ideally, we would use a pre-cut adhesive template, however, at the time of writing there just isn’t any available on the market. For this reason, using 6.5mm double side adhesive tape lay the touch screen area with new adhesive. Make sure the new adhesive does not cover the LCD, where it could be seen through digitiser once assembled. Also bear in mind digitiser flex cable location and work around it. Super important; make sure you do not cover speaker locations in adhesive.
Prepare the new screen and clean the digitiser from any dust particles or smudges. Use lint free wipes, screen cleaner and compressed air.
Firstly, remove the film from the inner panel of the new digitiser. Secondly, feed the flex cable through a cutout slot in the shell, so it comes out to the back of the console.
Place new the digitiser in place by firstly tightly aligning the corner next to flex cable and then laying down other 3 in place. Double check for dust, remove the outer protective film and place it on the heating platform for 10 minutes at 80C.
Once the platform is cool, remove the console and put it back together following the steps backwards.
