Introduction

This guide will show you how to replace the LCD display touchscreen digitizer for your Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra if the display is cracked or unresponsive. A heat gun or hairdryer is needed to open the back panel, which can become hot and potentially damage the phone. In addition, a T5 screwdriver is needed to remove screws, while tweezers and a spudger are needed to remove different components of the phone.

  • Use a hair dryer to heat each corner of the phone.

  • Alternate heating each corner for a minute to loosen the adhesive binding the back cover to the phone.

  • Don't heat one area for too long; the phone may get damaged from overheating.

Consider saying “loosen” instead of “soften” so that steps 2 and 3 use the same terms. Somebody may not know that heating the glue will loosen it, and so they will be confused reading “once the adhesive is loosened” in step 3.
