Use this guide to replace the worn-out battery in your Google Pixel 2.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions. Do not heat your phone. If needed, you can use a dropper or syringe to inject isopropyl alcohol (90+%) around the edges of the back cover to weaken the adhesive. Swollen batteries can be very dangerous, so wear eye protection and exercise due caution, or take it to a professional if you’re not sure how to proceed.

  1. If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond. Apply a suction cup as close to the volume button edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • Apply a suction cup as close to the volume button edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

  2. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case. This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener,  heat gun, or hair dryer. This requires a significant amount of force and patience.

    They cannot emphasize enough how careful you need to be when separating the screen. The iOpener does not work well enough to prevent breakage (opinion). I spent a majority of the hour and forty five minutes replacing my battery on removing the screen, i.e. reheating the iOpener, warming the device, slowly, with multiple passes, separating the adhesive. Use a heat gun or blow dryer.

  3. In the following steps, extra caution is required in certain areas to avoid damage to the phone: Do not insert the pick more than 0.5 inches into the bottom edge of the phone. If the pick contacts the folded portion of the OLED panel it can damage the display.

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for the input! I’ve re-ordered the guide to remove the unnecessary steps.

    • Alternatively, apply a heated iOpener to the back of the phone over the battery for at least two minutes. Reheat and reapply the iOpener as needed until the battery adhesive is sufficiently weakened.

  21. Hold the charging assembly cable out of the way and insert an opening pick along the bottom edge of the battery. Apply steady, even pressure to slowly lever the battery up and out of the phone.
    • Hold the charging assembly cable out of the way and insert an opening pick along the bottom edge of the battery.

    • Apply steady, even pressure to slowly lever the battery up and out of the phone.

    • Only pry from the center of the battery to avoid damaging the delicate ribbon cables beneath either side of the battery.

    • Try your best not to deform the battery during this process. Soft-shell lithium-ion batteries can leak dangerous chemicals, catch fire, or even explode if damaged. Do not use excessive force or pry at the battery with metal tools.

    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

    • To install a new battery:

    • Use a spudger to scrape away any remaining adhesive from the phone, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth.

    • Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the phone, not directly onto the battery. The adhesive should not touch any of the cables under the battery.

    • Press the battery firmly into place for 20-30 seconds.

결론

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

After completing this guide, calibrate your newly-installed battery.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

The instructions say “No parts required” and yet I believe that for a battery replacement you might possibly require a new battery (and maybe a new screen in the case of a broken screen). Also you might suggest replacement adhesive and where to find that, too.

Hey. So I bought a new housing and a new screen for my Pixel 2. And I have a problem with that. After moving the parts to the new housing my vibromotor stopped working and bottom of the screen easily comes off. What should I do?

Rauf Salikhov - 답글

Hi Rauf, it’s hard to say exactly what’s wrong, but as a start I would disconnect and reconnect the vibrator motor to make sure it’s connected correctly. As for the screen, make sure you carefully clean any old adhesive off the screen and case (use 90% or higher isopropyl alcohol for stubborn), and apply new adhesive to the screen before you replace it. That should help the display seat in the case and stay put.

I have a quick question, if we were to replace the screen adhesive with the Tesa 61395 tape, would the phone still remain water resistant to IP67? I am only worried it would not hold it as strong as the original adhesive

Tony Goh - 답글

Hi Tony, Tesa tape creates a strong bond and should secure your screen just as well as the old adhesive. Unfortunately, the phone won’t be waterproof since you can’t create a continuous seal using the tape.

Adam O'Camb -

It wasn’t super clear to me that you have to cut through the material that surrounds the speakers top and bottom. Looks like I get to replace my screen now too :-(

Andrew Klaiber - 답글

I did the whole process, after replacing the battery and putting eveyrthing together my screen never lit back up. I can feel the sceen being responsive to my touch but that’s it, it pitch black.

Hector Ramirez - 답글

I’m having the same problem…. any thoughts?

Amrita Patnaik -

Did you ever resolve this issue? I’ve just done my battery / screen replacement and have the same thing. I can feel the phone restart from the vibration but the screen never lights up.

Erik Karlin -

Hi, how do i reassemble the phone? Your guide stops at putting in the battery.

Jake Tecchio - 답글

Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly except where otherwise noted. Follow the steps in reverse. Whenever special reassembly instructions are needed, you’ll see a reminder bullet (looks like a push pin)—such as in this step.

Jeff Suovanen -

I am thankful for the instructions, I would classify this as an “expert” level task.

While I successfully followed the instructions and did replace the battery, now I broke the screen somehow. On a side note, if somebody calls the phone it rings, so I know the battery works.

If you need to do these instructions, they are precise, but please know this is a time consuming task and frought with risk.

Hi, what size of tesa tape do you recommend? (can only buy tape on a roll from the EU store)

Howard Ching - 답글

I’d recommend the 4 mm width for installing the battery. If you want tape for other repairs as well, the 1 mm width is probably more versatile as it can be used to secure smaller parts and fit along the edges of displays. You can lay multiple strips of the 1 mm tape next to each other to secure larger parts if needed.

Adam O'Camb -

DON’T DO THIS REPAIR unless you are planning on replacing the screen. Too many people have ended up with non-functional screens after performing this repair, turning a $50 repair into a $200 repair. For a phone of this age, it’s not worth the gamble.
