Introduction

This guide will show you how to remove the headphone jack from your Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra. The headphone jack should be repleaced if it damaged or blocked by a foreign object. 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 a spudger is needed to pry out the headphone jack.

How do you remove it? (Seems obvious but write for any audience, and say how to do things instead of just what to do)

Use a hair dryer to heat each corner 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.

  • Press a suction cup on a heated corner of the device.

  • Hold the phone down and gently lift the suction cup to create a small gap.

  • You may hear crunching or popping sounds when you lift up the back cover.

Clarify where the screws are

Maybe add a caution that the module is hard to take off

Could use better explanation on how to take off

Tiffany Dang - Réponse

“to take off piece” change to take off the piece? Or even be specific, “pull with your hands to remove the module.”
