Possible hinge warping when replacing screen lens

Hi, want to replace the screen lens but I'm not sure if using a hair dryer to loosen the old lens will cause the hinge to warp and break, what would be a good way to prevent this from happening, or will it be fine without any need for prevention.

@bruceblack44051 hopefully your hair dryer does not get that hot. Anyhow, always keep it moving, don't blast all the hot air at one spot. The trick here is to create an even warm area to remove any adhesive etc. If you are still concerned, cover the hinge area with some aluminum foil and you should be okay ;-)

I am posting this to supplement the response @oldturkey03 left. There are a few hairdryers on the market to never, ever use for a case like this I have used on things like data recovery operations like an LG G4 509K, and Samsung as well as pre good design Pixel adhesive like the 3 XL: The Conair 1875. DO NOT USE IT, IT GETS THAT HOT. It will probably melt multiple parts if you're not careful! If it can get me into a P3/P4 series (known for terrible adhesive), it gets that hot. I won't even use it for battery adhesive unless I am replacing that battery; I seen all I needed to see after I pulled off a data recovery operation with a hairdryer... I don't want to know the risk level; it probably permanently compromised my old LG G4's battery since it had to be installed to turn on to the point I wouldn't even want to give it to a friend who knows I exposed it to that thing.

A good rule of thumb is if it's 1,000+ watts, probably too hot unless it's a "styler" design like the Conair 1875 styler. This is the bad one: Conair 1875, avoid; gets hot enough to melt solder, this is BAD FOR PLASTIC, but this one is fine: Conair 1875 Styler, less risky but be careful.
