    • Allow your battery to drain below 25% before starting this repair. A charged battery may catch fire if damaged.

    • Fully power off your phone and unplug any cables.

    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • If your screen is cracked, cover it with a layer of clear packing tape to help the suction cup adhere.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Slide the arms over either the left or right edge of your phone.

    • Position the suction cups near the bottom edge of the phone—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Squeeze the cups together to apply suction.

    • If you find that the surface of your phone is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, you can use tape to create a grippier surface.

    • Pull the blue handle forward to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

    • Heat an iOpener and thread it through the arms of the Anti-Clamp.

    • You can also use a hair dryer or heat gun—but extreme heat can damage the display and/or internal battery, so proceed with care.

    • Fold the iOpener so it lays on the bottom edge of the phone.

    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen frame when the Anti-Clamp creates a large enough gap.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle clockwise half a turn.

    • Don't crank more than a half a turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next two steps.

  5. Google Pixel 6 Pro Fingerprint Reader Replacement, Loosen the display adhesive: étape 5, image 1 de 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the screen to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least 3 minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the device.

    • Once the screen is warm to the touch, apply a suction handle to the bottom edge of the screen.

    • If your screen is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction handle to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction handle. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction handle to the screen.

    • Lift the screen including its safety frame with the suction handle to create a small gap between the screen and the phone assembly.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap between the screen frame and the phone assembly.

    • Make sure to insert your opening pick in the right position to avoid separating the screen from its safety frame instead of the phone assembly.

    • Slide the opening pick to the bottom left corner of the screen to slice its adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in place to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  7. Google Pixel 6 Pro Fingerprint Reader Replacement, Slice the adhesive: étape 7, image 1 de 2 Google Pixel 6 Pro Fingerprint Reader Replacement, Slice the adhesive: étape 7, image 2 de 2
    • Insert a second opening pick at the bottom edge and slide it to the bottom right corner of the screen to slice the adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in place to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • The screen of the Google Pixel 6 Pro is not only held in place by adhesive but also small plastic pins. In case your opening pick gets blocked during the screen removal procedure it means you inserted your pick too deep underneath the screen. Only insert the tip of the opening pick (~3-4 mm) when slicing the display adhesive.

    • Insert a third opening pick underneath the bottom left corner of the screen.

    • Slide the opening pick along the left edge of the screen to slice the adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in the top left corner to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  9. Google Pixel 6 Pro Fingerprint Reader Replacement: étape 9, image 1 de 2 Google Pixel 6 Pro Fingerprint Reader Replacement: étape 9, image 2 de 2
    • If the adhesive becomes hard to cut, it has most likely cooled down. Use your iOpener or heat gun for 1-2 minutes to reheat it.

    • When you slice near the front facing camera, insert only the tip of the opening pick (~2-3 mm) to avoid damaging or smearing the camera.

    • Insert a fourth opening pick at the top left corner of the screen.

    • Slide the opening pick along the top edge of the phone to slice the adhesive.

    • Leave the opening pick in the top right corner to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

  10. Google Pixel 6 Pro Fingerprint Reader Replacement: étape 10, image 1 de 2 Google Pixel 6 Pro Fingerprint Reader Replacement: étape 10, image 2 de 2
    • Insert a fifth opening pick and slide it along the right edge of the phone to slice the remaining adhesive.

    • Do not try to remove the display all the way yet, the screen is still connected to the phone assembly.

    • While the Pixel 6 Pro uses Torx Plus screws, standard Torx bits work. Make sure to apply constant, downward force to prevent stripping.

    • Use a Torx T3 screwdriver to remove the 2.0 mm-long 3IP Torx Plus screw securing the display cable metal bracket.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from.

    • Remember to reinstall the display cable bracket.

    • This is a good point to test your phone before sealing it up. Temporarily connect your screen, power on your phone, and make sure it works as expected. Before continuing with reassembly, power off your phone and disconnect the screen.

    • Carefully slide an opening pick underneath the fingerprint reader to slice its adhesive.

    • Be very gentle during this procedure. Too much force might damage the display. If the adhesive is hard to cut, reapply your iOpener for another minute to loosen it.

    • Be careful not to overheat the screen—the display is susceptible to heat damage.

Where the heck can you buy a replacement one? I broke mine during screen replacement

Olek - Réponse

did you find any place where to get the replacement fingerprint module? I need to buy one too

luk355 -

The new screen did not come with the plastic frame. This would be helpful to discuss.

Yeah, that depends on what the screen comes with when you buy it. Some places sell replacement displays with nothing else and also an option with the frame, shieldings and fingerprint reader attached
