Introduction

Use this guide to remove the rear glass on your Huawei P40 Pro.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

  1. Apply a  heated iOpener to the rear glass to loosen the adhesive underneath. Apply the iOpener for at least two minutes.

  2. Since the rear glass of the Huawei P40 Pro is curved, we highly recommend to slice the adhesive with a softer plastic tool like the iMac opening wheel before working with opening picks to prevent the rear glass from shattering. Secure a suction handle to the bottom edge of the rear glass, as close to the curved edge as possible. If your rear glass is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the rear glass.
