Andddddd continue this iFix folks! It's not a matter of working backwards. Most people must have cracked screens and end up having to rip the screen off and won't have a chance to inspect connections.
Mine was missing. Made one with scissors but still didn't do the trick. I just worked with the batteries still plugged in.
Use the provided replace screen case's square compartments to place your screws into as you remove them. Really helpful and you likely won't mess up.
You will end up having to scrape the outter ledge to remove the old screen. I bled and got glass shards everywhere. Good luck!
Don't assume anything!! I thought I was pulling on the screen connector and I was pulling on an antenna component instead. Didn't ruin its connection range but I sure remember doing it and now my iPad has a little internal flaw only I'm aware of.
Doesn't work. Perhaps include more copy on exactly how to do it?
Taping with package tape doesn't work. You'll need a very large piece of tape if you go this route.
I heated mine up for 30 seconds, tested, then again for 30 seconds. It felt adequately hot. Leaving it on the left side, per the instruction, for a minute did not loosen the adhesive. I ended up pulling the suction cup hard enough to shadder the old screen. Moral of the story, I don't think it gets hot enough safely to have an affect.
