    • Rotate the display slightly away from the upper case.

    • Lift the display away from the upper case, minding any brackets or cables that may get caught.

  16. In the following steps, you will use a heat gun to soften the adhesive securing the outer black border around the underside of the front glass panel to the display. The area the adhesive is applied  to is shown in red in the second picture. With the heat gun set to low, start by heating the outer black border near the upper right corner of the glass panel.
    • In the following steps, you will use a heat gun to soften the adhesive securing the outer black border around the underside of the front glass panel to the display. The area the adhesive is applied to is shown in red in the second picture.

    • With the heat gun set to low, start by heating the outer black border near the upper right corner of the glass panel.

    • Always aim the heat gun away from the soft rubber strip around the display glass. Heating the rubber will cause it to melt slightly, turning its finish from matte to glossy. Touching overheated rubber can cause it to permanently deform.

    • Due to the heat applied, it is normal for a layer of condensation to develop on the inside of the glass panel and/or the outside of the LCD. It can be removed with glass cleaner once the glass is separated from the display.

    • With the panel sufficiently heated, fasten a heavy-duty suction cup near the upper right corner of the display glass.

    • Don't fasten the suction cup on top of the rubber strip around the edge of the display glass.

    • To attach the suction cups we sell, first position the suction cup with the movable handle parallel to the face of the glass panel. While lightly holding the suction cup against the glass, raise the movable handle until it is parallel with the other handle.

    • Slowly and gently pull the corner of the display glass up off the display assembly.

    • If only the top edge of the glass lifts up (as seen in the third picture), repeat steps one and two until you can lift up the corner of the panel.

  17. Gently lift the corner of the display glass enough to insert a spudger between it and the display assembly. Use the flat end of a spudger to gently pry up the adhesive securing the front glass to the display. Pry up the glass panel a few inches away from the upper right corner along the top and right edges of the display.

  18. Use a heat gun to soften the adhesive under the black strip along the right side of the front glass panel. Attach a suction cup along the right side of the front glass panel.
    • Use a heat gun to soften the adhesive under the black strip along the right side of the front glass panel.

    • Attach a suction cup along the right side of the front glass panel.

    • Pull up on the glass panel while you use the flat end of a spudger to separate it from the rest of the display assembly.

    • Continue working along the right edge of the front display glass until it is separated from the display.

    • It may be helpful to use a guitar pick or another thin plastic object to keep the upper right corner of the front glass panel from sticking back down to the display assembly.

  19. Use your heat gun to soften the adhesive under the black strip along the top edge of the glass display panel. Attach a suction cup near the top edge of the glass display panel and use it to pull the glass panel up off the display.
    • Use your heat gun to soften the adhesive under the black strip along the top edge of the glass display panel.

    • Attach a suction cup near the top edge of the glass display panel and use it to pull the glass panel up off the display.

    • Work along the top edge of the glass panel, carefully using the flat end of a spudger to separate the adhesive if necessary.

    • Use a heat gun to soften the adhesive under the black strip near the upper left corner of the glass display panel.

    • Attach a suction cup near the upper left corner of the glass display panel.

    • Pull up on the suction cup and use the flat end of a spudger to carefully pry the glass display panel out of the display assembly.

    • Once the upper left corner has been separated from the display, it may be helpful to use a guitar pick or another thin plastic object to keep the glass from sticking back down to the display assembly.

    • Pull up on the glass panel while you use the flat end of a spudger to separate it from the rest of the display assembly.

    • Continue working along the left edge of the front display glass until it is separated from the display.

  22. Now that the top, left, and right edges of the glass are free from the display, slowly lift the top edge of the glass panel and gently rotate it out of the display. If necessary, use the flat end of a spudger to free the bottom edge of the glass display panel from the display assembly.
    • Now that the top, left, and right edges of the glass are free from the display, slowly lift the top edge of the glass panel and gently rotate it out of the display.

    • If necessary, use the flat end of a spudger to free the bottom edge of the glass display panel from the display assembly.

    • Before reassembling, be sure to clean both the inside of the glass display panel and the LCD as any dust or fingerprints trapped inside will be annoyingly visible when the machine is on. It is recommended to use a silicon roller and sticky sheets to clean well.

  23. Insert the edge of a plastic opening tool between the display glass and the camera bracket, and run it around the camera bracket to separate it from the display glass. Do not forget to stick the camera bracket down to the new front display glass before reassembly.

  24. During the glass removal process, the  AirPort & iSight data cable may stick to the adhesive on the glass panel, disconnecting it from the camera board as the panel is lifted. If your AirPort & iSight data cable is still connected to the camera board, skip this step. If your objective is to remove the camera board, skip this step as reconnecting the  AirPort & iSight data cable is not necessary. To reconnect the cable, first use the tip of a spudger to remove the piece of foam tape over the AirPort & iSight data cable ZIF socket.

oh! and great organization tip for the screws: i poked them thru a piece of notebook paper with the corresponding steps written next to them. it worked like a charm, far better than anything else i could think of.

well, i didn't have the required suction cup... and so after trying for about 5 minutes with the iphone suction cups, i just picked at the broken glass (most of us have the broken screens, right?) and it went much better. i was worried about scratching the LCD as i picked and scraped, so be gentle, and wary of that. it was a fun/nerve-wracking 3.5 hours.

Agree, forget about getting the glass off in one try. Apparently the glue hardens out a bit, I couldn't get the screen off with the ordered suction cups. In the end I did the same as Brian above: just kept breaking off more glass until the LCD was free, then painstakingly removed the bits around the border with a sharp knife. Just be careful.

Keep a vacuum cleaner nearby, as you'll end up with lots of microscopic glass fragments.

I vacuumed the LCD then sprayed LCD cleaner on & wiped it with a microfiber cloth. This worked very well. Make sure you get all the glass fragments off the border as well, I missed one and now the border makes a bit of noise if you press down there.

Everything on this review seemed to work rather flawlessly for me up until the point where I had to use the heat gun and suckers to remove the cracked screen. After much use of the heat gun (hairdryer in my case) I feared that the LCD may be effected by the excessive heat, so I started to carefully breaking away at my already cracked screen. With the screen not trapped beneath a sheet of glass and able to breathe, I felt much more relaxed about using the hairdryer to loosen glue around the edges. After a short amount of picking, and scraping, I managed to get all the glass shards off and apply the new glass screen. It was helpful to have another set of hands to position the hairdryer as I moved along to enable faster separation of glass from the panel. Good as new after mind you! Don't let the 9/10 difficulty rating deter you, just be careful, organized and take your time :)

I totally agree: if your glass is broken (a good reason why you may be looking how to change it) you'll have to be VERY patient. It is very likely that the glass will break in hundreds of tiny pieces while performing these operations. My experience says: 1) Heat the adhesive thoroughly to minimize the work. 2) Go fetch some glasses to protect your eyes. 3) Good Luck! :)

BTW, if your model is a 13" Late 2008 MacBook you can go for the 13" MacBook Pro 2009+ glass. It fits, and you're old Mac will get a fun cosmetic upgrade :P
