    Thank you for the detailed description of tear down, it’s very helpful. I dropped my phone yesterday and it landed the volume rocker which is now bent inwards and jammed in to the main chassis of the phone. Means I can’t toggle the volume up or down through the button but it also seems to be lodged in further on the down button. I plan to open the phone and see if I can try and fix it myself.

    One question – is the volume rocker attached to the front (screen) part of the phone or the main base of the phone? My plan is to try and push/bend it back outwards. Do you think this is possible?

      Hi Nav, you should total disassemble the OnePlus 5 then you can see the Volume buttons, your think is possible but it has a risk for you to do it. The volume is a separate part of the phone. I suggest you send it to a repair shop or the phone manufacturer. If you want to do it yourself, please watch the video before you do it.
