This guide shows how to replace a broken or cracked display assembly for the Moto Z. The display assembly includes the front glass and the AMOLED display.

The display assembly is extremely fragile and has no reinforcement. Work slowly and methodically when handling the display assembly.

If your display glass is cracked, tape over the glass to keep the glass contained and to prevent bodily harm during your repair.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the left edge of the phone for at least 90 seconds.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

    • As you're waiting for the adhesive to soften, move on and read the following step to get an idea of where to pry.

    • In the following steps you will be cutting through the adhesive around the edge of the display assembly.

    • To avoid damage, do not cut in the following areas:

    • The OLED panel

    • The home button

    • The flash unit

    • Apply a suction cup as close to the heated edge as possible.

    • Lift on the suction cup and insert the tip of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Do not insert the pick more than 1/16" (1.5 mm). Over-inserting the pick may damage the OLED panel.

    • Carefully slide the tip of the opening pick down and up the side of the phone, making sure not to cut deeper than 1/16" (1.5 mm).

    • As you run the pick along the side, you will feel the tip of the pick press against the edge of the OLED panel. That is as far as the pick should go without damaging the panel.

    • Once you have separated the adhesive, leave an opening pick in the side to keep the adhesive from resealing.

    • Repeat the heating, lifting, and cutting steps for the remaining long edge of the phone.

    • Do not insert the pick more than 1/16" (1.5 mm) into the edge.

    • Once you are done cutting, leave the pick in the corner to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • Insert an opening pick into a bottom corner and slice towards the home button, stopping before you reach it.

    • Once you're done with the corner, leave a pick in place to prevent the adhesive from sealing.

    • Repeat the process for the other bottom corner.

    • Carefully twist the first opening pick slightly to help release the edge adhesive.

    • Before you reinstall the display assembly, thoroughly remove any remaining adhesive and glass from the frame.

    • After removing all traces of glue and glass from the frame, clean the adhesion areas with 90% (or higher) isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth or coffee filter.

    • Be sure to turn on your phone and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing the phone.

Do you ship to India?

Watch the youtube video it’s a lot better also instead of sending a sticker that connects the phone and the screen they should’ve added adhesive to the new screen.

Jonathan Davila - 답글

Hi Jonathan,

Unlike aftermarket screens that may have adhesive pre-attached, we are an authorized Motorola reseller and sell OEM Motorola parts. In this case, the OEM screen comes without adhesive pre-attached.

For the most part this was a helpful guide, but what about the flash? When following the directions the flash comes off with the screen/digitizer, and it appears to have happened to the author as well. There is no mention or help in reattaching this component or needing to purchase a new flash component prior to beginning the repair. It will be too late for me, but any insight might help others.

Joe Wiltjer - 답글

Hey Joe,

You’re right—depending on the part you order, you may need to transfer the flash lens from your original back cover to the replacement part. This involves prying the original off and sticking it back onto the replacement cover. I’ll add a note to one of the steps.
