Use this guide to replace the worn-out battery in your Google Pixel 2.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

Warning: Because of the strong adhesive securing the display, minimal clearance for inserting your tools, and high heat required, there is a good chance of accidentally damaging your display during this procedure. Unless you plan to replace your display in conjunction with this repair, work very carefully and be prepared to replace the display, should it not work upon reassembly. Follow the instructions carefully and observe all warnings to increase your odds of success.

The battery is held in place by very strong adhesive. You will need to use high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol in order to loosen the battery from the phone.

  1. If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond. Apply a suction cup as close to the volume button edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • Apply a suction cup as close to the volume button edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

    My screen is severly cracked. I would recommend clear packaging tape as it is wide enough to accomodate the suction cup. Thinner cellophane tape won’t seal properly.

  2. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case. This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener,  heat gun, or hair dryer. The display panel is fragile. If you plan to re-use your display, take care to insert your tool only as far as necessary to separate the adhesive. Inserting the tool any further can damage the OLED panel under the glass.

    They cannot emphasize enough how careful you need to be when separating the screen. The iOpener does not work well enough to prevent breakage (opinion). I spent a majority of the hour and forty five minutes replacing my battery on removing the screen, i.e. reheating the iOpener, warming the device, slowly, with multiple passes, separating the adhesive. Use a heat gun or blow dryer.

    Devin McMillen - Yanıt

    How many passes do I need? I do have a heatgun but I’m afraid to discolor or damage the screen. Anyone know the best temp before stopping to seperate the screen?

    try the alcohol as instructed instead of heat. “Do not heat your phone. If needed, you can use a dropper or syringe to inject isopropyl alcohol (90+%) around the edges of the back cover to weaken the adhesive.  “

    Rogerio Sa - Yanıt

    Make sure to remove the adhesive under the top and bottom speakers to make it much easier to remove the screen.

    Chibi Chica - Yanıt

    Isopropyl alcohol works well to loosen the adhesive. However - GO SLOW. Slide the pick a bit, then apply some isopropyl alcohol into the gap where you’re sliding toward. Wait a moment, then slide a bit more. Move very slowly, particularly around the corners!

    Raquel Smith - Yanıt

    Any idea on what to do when the suction cup pops off of the screen before there’s enough clearance to slide the pick in?

    Douglas Leenhouts - Yanıt

    I used a hairdryer to weaken the adhesive. If you place your finger in the path of the hairdryer you’ll have a good idea of when too much heat has been applied (when your skin becomes unhappy at the temperature). BE VERY GENTLE. I cracked my screen because I didn’t weaken the adhesive enough. I also chipped(dog eared) the corner of the OLED screen underneath with one of the plastic tools. Don’t stick it in too far. As the guide says, use the flat edge or the pick to help control this.

  3. In the following steps, extra caution is required in certain areas to avoid damage to the phone: Do not insert the pick more than 9 mm into the bottom edge of the phone. If the pick contacts the folded portion of the OLED panel it can damage the display.

    • Do not insert the pick more than 9 mm into the bottom edge of the phone. If the pick contacts the folded portion of the OLED panel it can damage the display.

    • Only make very shallow cuts in the upper left corner, prying deeply can damage the front-facing camera.

    • Inserting an opening tool deeper than 1.5 mm into the sides of the device, or 9 mm into the top and bottom can permanently damage the display.

    This is inaccurate. The Pixel 2 phone’s back comes in two parts: a plastic main section and a glass back upper section. Only the glass section is required to be removed to replace the camera. Once the glass back is removed, the camera can easily be replaced without removing the motherboard, battery, or any other components. What is picture here looks like the original Google Pixel Phone.

    While not shown here in the photo, there is a short braided cable between the midframe and the motherboard near the front facing camera that prevents separating the midframe completely (ground?). Be careful not to damage this cable when completing the remaining steps or carefully remove before trying to separate the midframe completely.

    ericdowens - Yanıt

    As ericdowens says above, there’s a small silver sliver of a connector (next to the front-facing camera). The guides on youtube said it was a grounding wire. This guide doesn’t mention it. Mine broke when I removed the midframe. No big deal. I stuck it back down with some tape when I put it all back together. Phone works fine.

    • Hold the charging assembly cable out of the way and insert an opening pick along the bottom edge of the battery.

    • Apply steady, even pressure to slowly lever the battery up and out of the phone.

    • Only pry from the center of the battery to avoid damaging the delicate ribbon cables beneath either side of the battery.

    • Try your best not to deform the battery during this process. Soft-shell lithium-ion batteries can leak dangerous chemicals, catch fire, or even explode if damaged. Do not use excessive force or pry at the battery with metal tools.

    • If you are having trouble, apply some more alcohol under the battery and try again.

    • Remove the battery.

    • Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

    • To install a new battery:

    • Use a spudger to scrape away any remaining adhesive from the phone, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth.

    • Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the phone, not directly onto the battery. The adhesive should not touch any of the cables under the battery.

    • Press the battery firmly into place for 20-30 seconds.

    Why I have to replace the battery if it doing well??!!

    And is it necessary to remove the battery to reinstall the rear camera?

    shady mohamed - Yanıt

    Lithium-ion batteries are susceptible to damage when they are bent or creased—the thin layers inside the battery may short, resulting in swelling and potential fire hazard.

    You should be able to replace the rear camera without removing the battery. I will adjust the rear camera guide to reflect this.

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.

After completing this guide, calibrate your newly-installed battery.

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

The instructions say “No parts required” and yet I believe that for a battery replacement you might possibly require a new battery (and maybe a new screen in the case of a broken screen). Also you might suggest replacement adhesive and where to find that, too.

Leslie Gawne - Yanıt

Hey. So I bought a new housing and a new screen for my Pixel 2. And I have a problem with that. After moving the parts to the new housing my vibromotor stopped working and bottom of the screen easily comes off. What should I do?

Rauf Salikhov - Yanıt

Hi Rauf, it’s hard to say exactly what’s wrong, but as a start I would disconnect and reconnect the vibrator motor to make sure it’s connected correctly. As for the screen, make sure you carefully clean any old adhesive off the screen and case (use 90% or higher isopropyl alcohol for stubborn), and apply new adhesive to the screen before you replace it. That should help the display seat in the case and stay put.

Adam O'Camb -

I have a quick question, if we were to replace the screen adhesive with the Tesa 61395 tape, would the phone still remain water resistant to IP67? I am only worried it would not hold it as strong as the original adhesive

Tony Goh - Yanıt

Hi Tony, Tesa tape creates a strong bond and should secure your screen just as well as the old adhesive. Unfortunately, the phone won’t be waterproof since you can’t create a continuous seal using the tape.

Adam O'Camb -

It wasn’t super clear to me that you have to cut through the material that surrounds the speakers top and bottom. Looks like I get to replace my screen now too :-(

I did the whole process, after replacing the battery and putting eveyrthing together my screen never lit back up. I can feel the sceen being responsive to my touch but that’s it, it pitch black.

Hector Ramirez - Yanıt

I’m having the same problem…. any thoughts?

Amrita Patnaik -

Did you ever resolve this issue? I’ve just done my battery / screen replacement and have the same thing. I can feel the phone restart from the vibration but the screen never lights up.

Erik Karlin -

Same issue here. Screen never worked again upon reassembly. Used iFixit toolkit and followed instructions closely.

Marcus Reid -

Hi, how do i reassemble the phone? Your guide stops at putting in the battery.

Jake Tecchio - Yanıt

Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly except where otherwise noted. Follow the steps in reverse. Whenever special reassembly instructions are needed, you’ll see a reminder bullet (looks like a push pin)—such as in this step.

Jeff Suovanen -

I am thankful for the instructions, I would classify this as an “expert” level task.

While I successfully followed the instructions and did replace the battery, now I broke the screen somehow. On a side note, if somebody calls the phone it rings, so I know the battery works.

If you need to do these instructions, they are precise, but please know this is a time consuming task and frought with risk.

Hi, what size of tesa tape do you recommend? (can only buy tape on a roll from the EU store)

Howard Ching - Yanıt

I’d recommend the 4 mm width for installing the battery. If you want tape for other repairs as well, the 1 mm width is probably more versatile as it can be used to secure smaller parts and fit along the edges of displays. You can lay multiple strips of the 1 mm tape next to each other to secure larger parts if needed.

Adam O'Camb -

DON’T DO THIS REPAIR unless you are planning on replacing the screen. Too many people have ended up with non-functional screens after performing this repair, turning a $50 repair into a $200 repair. For a phone of this age, it’s not worth the gamble.

Chris Kohaenk - Yanıt

I’m about to head to the store to purchase a new phone after unsuccessfully performing this upgrade. I highly recommend avoiding this repair unless you’re ready to get a new phone if things go south. The phone is working but the screen is not.

Andrew Jones - Yanıt

Is it possible to reheat the adhesive to create a new waterproof bond or is that not recommended?

Drewby Troshak - Yanıt

Terrible instructions. I followed them exactly and was very careful with the screen. I didn’t get the picks even .25 inches under the screen and it still broke just enough off a corner to kill the display. Screen doesn’t work at all anymore. Save your money and take the phone to a uBreakiFix place. They’ll do it for $80 with parts and labor, and if they break the screen, they’ll replace it. These instructions were horrible and a very poor description of what was required. Once I took my phone in, even with a new screen, the phone was stuck in a boot loop with the new battery. It worked again when I put the original battery back in. I have always heard good things about iFixIt, but this whole experience has changed my mind. Terrible directions and an incompatible battery. Definitely would not buy from them again.

Stephanie Crossland - Yanıt

Using these instructions, I’ve fixed two Pixel 2’s that suffered from puffed batteries — both repairs went smoothly. Excellent instructions and guide. The two phones here had very slightly different internals than pictured like an extra piece of tape here and there but nothing troubling. Getting the residual screen edge adhesive off takes the majority of time!

I highly recommend getting the matching pre-cut “Google Pixel 2 Display Adhesive” sold here. I have Tesa tape but the pre-cut adhesive sheet is not only much easier to install (you can lay it in place with the sheet still in place, so it’s nearly drop-in!) but it’s a continuous seal so will help keep things sealed up tighter than me hand-fitting long strips of Tesa.
