Introduction

Follow this guide to replace a broken or cracked screen on a Google Pixel 5.

Unlike previous Google Pixels models, the Pixel 5’s screen is reinforced with a metal frame. The earpiece speaker is also glued onto the back side of the screen.

Digvijay Engineers - Réponse

Hello! This tutorial is well explained and seems ok to realize, but the problem i’m facing is to find the right spare part… Once contacted, google assistance said the only option is to send it back to them for 138€ and 7-10 days… Can you recommand a trustworsthy website for that?

Aurelien Malot - Réponse

Usually i look on amazon (sent by amazon) to get the warranty if i got any problem.

Daniele Carminati -

Check out the iFixit store. We stock some parts for the Pixel 5, including the screen and battery.

The screen that I ordered has a cable that runs the wrong way. It would need to be twisted to make it fit my Pixel 5. Any suggestions?

Gordon Stephenson - Réponse

Get a refund and send it back and order a different display.

Josh Cook -

Do order the replacement with or without frame?

Marc H - Réponse

unless you’re a super pro, better with frame, It is not easy to glue up to the frame, and if that frame is damaged or gets damaged during tear down, can be a problem.

Hi,

I just replaced the screen with a new one, but now I have problems with the proximity sensor, When i press on one side of the screen it works, so I guess it is because it may be not glued strongly wnough? wich glue do you recommend?

Manuel López - Réponse

There is no info here about transferring the speaker. How is that done? Is adhesive needed? If so, what type?

Mike K - Réponse

I just use one or two strips of adhesive tape if I need to use new adhesive. Not much, though. If possible, get the earpiece speaker nice and warm to soften the adhesive. Apply lots of heat to the old display on the touchscreen side, not heating the earpiece directly. If you can heat it up enough, it should come off pretty cleanly. Then warm it up again and seat it well onto the new display with the original adhesive still attached the the earpiece speaker.

Hello! Just foolishly cracked my Google Pixel 5 screen and have no idea where to get the replacement. Based on your experience, could you please suggest where to order Pixel 5 screen replacement so that it would be as sharp and bright as the original? Ideally – THE original. Thank you in advance!

i bought a screen on ebay. supposedly oem. it seems just the same as the original.

Mike K -

Rounded.com expensive but 100% new and original parts straight from manufacturer

Simon -

I have to say I found this to be one of the easiest repairs I've ever done, I bought the complete original screen assembly from rounded.com and the manufacturer adhesive tape which gives the phone its IP rating seal back. Cost me about £160 all in. But I learnt skills at the same time. I used my nails and a guitar plectrum working from bottom end of the phone up. As good as new, well chuffed
