Follow this guide to remove a cracked or broken screen for the Moto X4.

As part of the procedure, you will have to transfer the fingerprint sensor from your broken screen to the replacement part.

  1. Motorola Moto X4 Screen Replacement, Heat the screen: 1 단계, 이미지 1/2 Motorola Moto X4 Screen Replacement, Heat the screen: 1 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • Before you begin, turn off your phone.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the left edge of the phone for two minutes.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

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

    • As you wait, take note of the the following areas:

    • Display cable—be careful not to slice too deeply near the edge here, or you may damage the display cable.

    • Fingerprint sensor cable—be careful not to slice too deeply near the edge here, or you may damage the fingerprint sensor cable.

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

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap in the seam.

    • Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Depending on the age of your phone, this may be difficult. If you are having trouble, apply heat to the edge and try again.

    • Slide the opening pick along the edge to slice through the adhesive.

    • Leave an opening pick in the seam to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

    • Swing open the screen and prop it up with a small box as you work on disconnecting the flex cables.

    • During reassembly, this is a good time to power on your phone and test all functions before sealing it up. Be sure to power your phone back down completely before you continue working.

  9. Motorola Moto X4 Screen Replacement, Detach the fingerprint sensor cable: 9 단계, 이미지 1/2 Motorola Moto X4 Screen Replacement, Detach the fingerprint sensor cable: 9 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • Slide the point of a spudger underneath the fingerprint sensor cable and gently pry up to loosen the cable from the phone.

    • Do not pull on the cable. It is still attached to the phone by a delicate ZIF socket.

    • Use the flat edge of a spudger to push the grille from the front side of the screen to loosen it from its recess.

    • Remove the grille.

    • Use some thin strips of Tesa tape to affix the grille to the replacement screen.

This guide really only covers screen removal, and should detail replacing the screen as advertised. Here are a few more steps that should be added:

1. Transferring old hardware to the new screen (seals, filters, fingerprint sensor, & the grey carbon mat.

2. Cleaning up old adhesive.

3. Applying new adhesive, whether it’s the one-piece that ifixit carries (recommended), or Tesa tape.

4. Installing the new display assembly

Is it possible to remove and replace only the glass? Can I do that without removing the whole LCD screen and avoid disconnecting/reconnecting wires?

Drew S - 답글

Hi Drew,

I haven’t tried, but I think it is possible to do a glass-only repair for this LCD screen, as long as you have the necessary tools and bonding adhesives. You would still have to deal with the fingerprint sensor, which is sealed onto the glass.

I noticed the fingerprint sensor not being quite as low on the right edge after this. Also, I think it has a bit of “give” now when I press on it with a thumbnail. If the tips of my thumbs weren't so dry right now I might not have noticed, though.

Chris Young - 답글

Hey Chris,

Did you add adhesive to the fingerprint sensor, if you didn't add some adhesive it may have some play, as most things need to be glued in place, and you could have forgotten to add some new adhesive.
