Use this guide to correctly apply replacement adhesive to your Pixel or Pixel XL display after a repair.

Some replacement displays do not come with an earpiece speaker grille. If your replacement screen doesn't have one, be sure to transfer the grille from your old display to the new one before you install it. Alternatively, you can buy a new one here.

Before you begin, you should have already removed your Pixel’s display assembly and set it aside. Detailed instructions for each model can be found at the following links:
