Tools Needed:

Step 1 power off the phone and take out the SIM card tray. 1-tak-out-sim-card

Step 2 Remove the rear housing

First thing we need to do is to undo the 2 screws through Pentalobe Screwdriver at the bottom of the phone. 2-undo-screws

After that, we’re going to separate the front screen assembly and rear housing through the screen separation tool, here you may need the spudger for help to prop up the front screen assembly through the headphone jack hole.


Gently pull up the Huawei P9 LCD assembly until a small gap shows up, insert a spudger tip in between and run it back and forth to release the rear housing. The LCD assembly and rear housing are connected by clips. Be careful not to scratch the back housing or the screen edges. 3-seperate-screen-assembly2


Remove the front screen assembly. 3-seperate-screen-assembly4 Take your time here, because the fingerprint sensor flex cable is still connected to the motherboard, disconnect it! 4-disconnect-fingerprint-sensor-flex-cable There, we’ve separated the rear housing! 5-remove-rear-housing

Then let’ s turn to the loudspeaker module. 21-remove-loudspeaker Step 5 Disassemble the front screen assembly.

First we’re aiming at the power & volume button flex, which is sticked tightly to the front frame. 22-remove-power-volume-flex-cable Next, the ear speaker and the proximity sensor module, apply a little heat would make the work easier.

Finally, we are coming to the battery, be careful here. We need to pull out the easy-to-pull sticker, which is easy to get broken, do not pull it too high. 25-pull-battery-sticker

26-pull-battery-sticker After that we can pry up the battery. 27-pry-up-battery Then we left the LCD screen assembly only. Cause separating the front frame is a tough job for most people, we suggest you to replace the whole screen assembly with frame if your screen is broken.
