Use this guide to replace the display of your Huawei P9.

Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. The battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured, but the chances of that happening are much lower if discharged.

  1. First switch off your phone and remove the SIM card tray. Unscrew the two Pentalobe P2 screws located at the bottom next to the device's USB C port. If the screen is cracked you might want to use some tape to protect your eyes from glass shreds and get a better grip to open the phone.

  2. Use an iSclack or a suction handle to separate the display unit from the rear panel. Don't remove the rear panel completely yet. There is a cable connected to it! It is running from the finger print sensor to the display unit.

    • The EVA-L09 model has an NFC antenna adhered onto the battery.

    • If you are just removing the battery to get to the display, you can leave the NFC on the battery.

    • Mark its place on the battery with a felt pen for reassembly. Carefully peel it off and make sure not to rip or crease the antenna.

    • For reassembly, place the NFC antenna on the battery where it was before so its contacts align with their counterparts.

  8. Free the ends of the adhesive pull tabs to get a good grip on them. Free the ends of the adhesive pull tabs to get a good grip on them.
    • Free the ends of the adhesive pull tabs to get a good grip on them.

    • The battery is secured with three pieces of adhesive, a removable pull-tab in the center, and on the SIM tray side. A third piece of adhesive on the button side has no pull-tab.

    • Pull the adhesive tabs in a slow constant movement to free the battery.

    • Should those adhesive tabs snap, you might want to use an iOpener to heat and soften them a little bit so you can pry out the battery with a spudger.

    • There are two cables running directly underneath the battery. Take care not to damage them when prying with a spudger! You can see their position in the last picture.

    • Slowly lift the battery toward the button side and free it from the remaining hidden piece of adhesive.

    • When reassembling your phone replace old adhesive with double-sided tape or pre-cut adhesive strips.

    • The glue used for the display is tough and needs patience and gentle steady force.

  12. When the glue is softened, insert a spudger through the camera bay in the midframe and push the display away from the frame. Place a plastic card or two opening picks under the display bezel at the top, between the screen and the frame. This will prevent the glue from readhering.

While the guide shows pictures along the process it doesn't really give the whole picture.

Just one example: as a repair guide, you could easily expect the display to be cracked and you can no longer use a suction cup to open it up.

A bigger issue is that the guide doesn't show steps up to the replacement part listed.

An incomplete guide while still providing enough information to help someone with experience in repairs.

ifixit sent me screen and digitizer without the metal frame. is there a way to remove the metal frame and add it to the replacement screen? does ifixit sell screen and digitizer with the metal frame?

david cech - Yanıt

you guys are killing me... first you sell the display without the frame even though your instructions clearly show the frame and now it is exactly the same story with a middle frame screen... why it is not part of your display package since it is necessary for the replacement and once again showed in instructional video?

david cech - Yanıt

Hello David, I am very sorry for the confusion. The guide was not congruent with the spare part in the shop. Having a display assembly with the frame already attached would be more convenient and an easier repair. Though the display without the frame is a bit cheaper but makes the guide more complex (hence the rating "difficult").

What instructional video do you mean? Is it for another device?

Tobias Isakeit -
