Inleiding

Use this guide to remove and replace a dead or low battery in a Motorola Moto Z2 Force. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

Warning: The screen assembly of this device is comprised of a rigid midframe and a flexible plastic display that can split apart during disassembly. Excessive heat on the display can also cause it to bubble up or warp, and this is very difficult to remedy. If you plan on reusing the screen assembly, heed all warnings carefully and take care to not overheat the display.

  1. Power your phone off before you begin.
    • Power your phone off before you begin.

    • If possible, drain the battery before disassembly. When the battery is charged, there's increased risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is overheated or damaged during repairs.

    • Prepare an iOpener and heat the front of the phone along its bottom edge for about two minutes, or until it's slightly too hot to touch. This will help soften the adhesive securing the screen assembly.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • Since the display is made of plastic, it is especially susceptible to warping and display damage. If you notice the display bubbling up or wrinkling, stop heating immediately and cool down the device before trying again.

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

  2. Apply a suction cup to the right edge of the display as close as possible to the bottom of the device without overlapping the fingerprint sensor. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap along the bottom edge between the screen assembly and rear case. This may require a significant amount of force, but you only need to open a very slight gap with the suction cup to insert your tool.
    • Apply a suction cup to the right edge of the display as close as possible to the bottom of the device without overlapping the fingerprint sensor.

    • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure to create a slight gap along the bottom edge between the screen assembly and rear case.

    • This may require a significant amount of force, but you only need to open a very slight gap with the suction cup to insert your tool.

    • As the display on top of the screen assembly is flexible, you may end up separating the right edge of the display from the screen assembly instead of lifting the entire assembly. Try to pull up just the bottom edge of the screen assembly to prevent warping the display.

    • If you have trouble, apply more heat to further soften the adhesive, and try again. The adhesive cools quickly, so you may need to heat it repeatedly.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap you opened behind the screen assembly.

    • Ensure your tool is behind the entire screen assembly and not just the display. You should notice a small plastic tab unclip from the device's frame if you have done this correctly.

  3. Slide the tool all along the bottom edge of the phone to slice through the adhesive securing the screen assembly and release the plastic clips. Leave your tool here underneath the bottom edge of the screen assembly to prevent it from re-adhering to the frame. Continue to the next step with a new tool.

  4. When separating the screen assembly from the rest of the device, you will need to disengage five metal clips securing it to the device's frame. Three of these clips are located on the left side of the device, and two are located on the right side.
    • When separating the screen assembly from the rest of the device, you will need to disengage five metal clips securing it to the device's frame.

    • Three of these clips are located on the left side of the device, and two are located on the right side.

    • You will need to work around these clips with your tool in order to fully disengage them.

    • You can either carefully slide the tool around these clips, or leave a pick on one side of the clip while prying the other side with another pick.

    • Take care to not insert your tool more than ~4 mm past the edge of the display to prevent damaging the front facing sensor array.

  11. There are two large pads of adhesive securing the screen assembly near the top edge but further past the 4 mm that have already been sliced through. The front facing sensor array and cable surround the right patch of adhesive from the top and right, so prying or slicing from the top or right edge may damage the cable. The following steps will describe how to separate the adhesive from the left edge.

    • Remove the screen assembly.

    • When putting your device back together, be sure to reconnect the display, turn the device on, and test all functionality before closing your device and sealing it back up.

    • During reassembly, pause here and replace the adhesive around the edges of the display if you are reusing your screen assembly.

    • After closing your device back up, stack something heavy, like a textbook or two, on top of the device for 30-60 minutes. This ensures a strong adhesive bond.

  18. Use a pair of tweezers to remove the two black pieces of tape securing the battery. Take care to keep these tape pieces intact so they can be reused. While not crucial, this tape helps dissipate heat from the battery.  They won't stick back down by themselves, but if the tape pieces are still mostly intact, re-attach them with some adhesive during reassembly.

    • Alternatively, apply high-concentration (>90%) isopropyl alcohol under the edge of the battery to weaken the adhesive underneath.

    • Let the phone sit for several minutes to allow the alcohol to penetrate and weaken the adhesive.

  22. Insert a flexible plastic tool on the left edge of the battery. We use an opening pick here, but a playing card is a safer (albeit slower) option. Gently pry up the battery with constant steady force. Try to slowly release the battery's adhesive without deforming the battery. If the battery begins to bend out of shape, pry slower or apply more heat/isopropyl alcohol. Several rounds of heating or alcohol may be necessary.

    • Do not use excessive force or pry at the battery with metal tools.

    • Slowly work your tool underneath the battery and continue prying until it is completely released from its adhesive.

    • Remove the battery from the device.

    • Reusing a deformed or bent battery after it has forcefully been removed is a safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

    • Before installing your new battery, peel up all the old adhesive and remove it from the phone.

    • For best results, clean the area underneath the battery with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth or coffee filter. This helps prep the surface so the new battery can adhere more strongly. Use a pre-cut adhesive sheet or high-strength, double-sided tape to install the new battery.

Conclusie

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least two more hours. Then, use it until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Anyone knows where to get the lcd glue/tape/adhesive?

Nuno Filipe - Antwoord

I got everything out, got a new battery, the screen works but the touchscreen doesn’t, anyone had the same problem?

Wow! This guide is way, way improved vs last week’s version! Nice work, Tarun! I picked up a “bad IMEI” copy of my Z2 Force on eBay to replace the damaged screen, and I’ll step my way through this when transplanting the screen. Thanks!
