Replace the adhesive securing the front panel to the rear case of your iPad 2 Wi-Fi.

Before you begin peeling and sticking tape, it's important to have clean adhesion surfaces on both the front panel and the rear case. Use a spudger to scrape off any large excess bits of original adhesive, then clean all of the gluing surfaces with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol or Goof Off.

Throughout this procedure, it is recommended to peel up each adhesive strip as needed.

Carefully grasp the home button with a pair of tweezers. Gently lower and place the home button into the round opening located at the bottom of the front panel. The correct orientation of the home button is shown in the third picture. Make sure the back of the home button is face up and the flat portion of the inner home button circle is oriented to the top of the iPad.

I believe this should go above the bracket. There is no metal to adhere to between the LCD and the camera.

Doug Hoderny - Antwoord

Yes, this is definitely the wrong way up. The adhesive strip should run along the outside edge on the screen.

This image needs to be removed. Messed up a couple following this.

It is definitely upside down.

Deja Vu - Antwoord

This strip is upside down. I followed these instructions and the top of my digitizer is loose now and doesn't stay down in the bezel. I have to buy more strips and do everything over.

Tim Banks - Antwoord

No. Everything is showed correctly. This strip doesn't have to glue to metal, there are plastic spacers for it at the top of the LCD.

If you afraid the glass will be loose of the bezel then you can cut two thin stripes of another two sided tape and attach them to the bezel's plastic as an extra option.

I think a straight on picture showing all the adhesive pieces in place would be really helpful.
