Mijn probleem

cracked glass

Mijn oplossing

The repair went well, 100% success. I used a hair dryer in addition to ifixit thing and carefully removed the glass and shards. The kit was essential especially the tweezers and splunger. The screws can be different sizes so a magnetic pad or careful keeping track is important. My main issue was cleaning the LCD which gets bits if adhesive/foam on it from removing it and a fingerprint from accidental touch- used canned air to blow off bits but then wiped with a computer screen wipe which was a bad idea as it left residue -- 70% isopropyl alcohol and a clean microfiber cloth worked well after that. took about 2 1/2 hours excluding the trip to CVS for the alcohol. Cleaned out all adhesive from metal surface with a alcohol wipe and flat end of splunger - do this prior to replacing LCD and digitizer screens, this takes some time.

Mijn advies

get a magnetic screw board to keep careful track of screws and all foam/tape bits that you have to remove and replace when re-assembling. watch all youtube videos (even the obviously bad ones) . Avoid having to wipe down the LCD if at all possible.
