Drop your S8? Keep it in the same pocket as your keys?

Chances are the glass back is already shattered. Use this guide to replace the back panel glass on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

If your replacement part does not come with adhesive mounted on it, you will also need to purchase adhesive for the rear glass and the fingerprint reader. You can buy pre-cut adhesive, or thin high-bond tape.

  1. Opening your phone will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement adhesive ready before you proceed, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your phone without replacing the adhesive.
    • Opening your phone will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement adhesive ready before you proceed, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your phone without replacing the adhesive.

    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to a long edge of the S8 for about 2 minutes.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

    • As you're waiting for the adhesive to soften, move on and read the following step to get an idea of where to pry.

    What type of adhesive should be used to seal? Or better said, what would you recommend.

    Ion Ion - Yanıt

    I’d recommend precut adhesive designed for the rear cover. If that’s not available, thin, hi-bond double sided tape like 1 mm wide Tesa 61395 tape will work well.

    When using a plate to warm things up, at what temp (celsius) should it be to avoid over heating?

    offer423 - Yanıt

    I cant even get the glass back off it.

  2. In the following steps you will be cutting through the adhesive around the edge of the rear glass panel. The adhesive on the rear case is laid out as seen in the first image.
    • In the following steps you will be cutting through the adhesive around the edge of the rear glass panel.

    • The adhesive on the rear case is laid out as seen in the first image.

    • The prying pattern as seen from the outside of the phone is as follows:

    • Thick portions of adhesive

    • Thin areas of adhesive

    • Avoid prying here, to protect the fingerprint sensor.

  3. Once the back panel is warm to the touch, apply a suction cup as close to the heated 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.
    • Once the back panel is warm to the touch, apply a suction cup as close to the heated 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.

    • If the phone's back cover is cracked, the suction cup may not stick. Try lifting it with strong tape, or superglue the suction cup in place and allow it to cure so you can proceed.

    • Lift on the suction cup, and insert a halberd spudger, or opening pick, under the rear glass.

    • Due to the curved glass, you will be pushing up, rather than inserting parallel to the plane of the phone.

    We can't seem to get anything between the edges even after heating the back panel. Any tips?

    Megan Kennington - Yanıt

    Hi Megan, unfortunately the adhesive is super tough on this one. I’d recommend carefully continuing to apply heat, very gradually so that you don’t accidentally overheat the battery. Eventually you should be able to get a little gap with the suction handle.

    Adam O'Camb -

    I’ve been attempting to get the adhesive to loosen for four hours now. Exactly how much time is this supposed to take? The pictures makes it look like it should be easy. The adhesive still hasn’t budged and I’m beyond frustrated.

    Lori Lucas - Yanıt

    Hi Lori, sorry to hear the adhesive is being extra stubborn! If reheating and reapplying the iOpener isn’t working, you can try heating the edge with a hairdryer or heat gun. That way you can get more heat onto the edge faster, but be very careful not to overheat the battery inside.

    Adam O'Camb -

    I used a stanley knife - very carefully, after trying for several hours to get the adhesive to loosen. I bought another back cover with adhesive for the assmbley, which is the best option in my opinion. Just be careful not the scratch the case of the phone, and be prepared for the back glass cover to break when removing it.

    James wright - Yanıt

    The iOpener was a good idea but it just didn’t work. I used the heat gun on low and got it off in about 7 min. 30 min to clean off the excess adhesive. The directions stopped at removing the battery. What the !&&*??? is there a trick to plugging in the battery. Mentioning the need to seat the loudspeaker assembly and the NFC antenna - charging coil would have been helpful. Also, directions on seating the adhesive for the battery. Finally, directions on placing the seal would have been good. I ham handedly got it but needed to use the added adhesive that was sent with the kit. Overall took about an hour. I’m kinda psycho over making sure all the old adhesive was removed. Used the heat gun to reseat backing. worked great! Need to revamp the directions with items above but the kit had everything (except heat gum) and things I didn’t need.(likely to cover other installs.) Worried about breaking glass back but no problem. Thanks for the kit.

  4. Once you have the tool firmly inserted into the glass, reheat and reapply the iOpener to soften the adhesive.

  5. Slide an opening pick or the blade of a Halberd spudger down the side of the phone, separating the adhesive. Go slowly so that the tool doesn't slip out of the seam. If cutting becomes difficult, reheat and reapply the iOpener.

    Petite erreur: le guide dit iPhone au lieu de S7 :)

  7. The fingerprint sensor cable connects the phone to the rear glass near the main camera. The cable is very short and should disconnect as the rear glass is removed. As you lift the glass, peek in to be sure the orange cable with a blue connector has disconnected.
    • The fingerprint sensor cable connects the phone to the rear glass near the main camera. The cable is very short and should disconnect as the rear glass is removed.

    • As you lift the glass, peek in to be sure the orange cable with a blue connector has disconnected.

    • Use the opening picks to slice through any remaining adhesive and open the phone slightly.

    • If the fingerprint sensor cable seems snagged or stays taut do not open the phone any further. Disconnect the connector with the point of a spudger before proceeding.

    • During reassembly, in order to reconnect the fingerprint sensor cable, first angle the back cover into position until the cable connector lines up perfectly over its socket. Then, use the flat end of your spudger to gently snap the connector into place by pressing it straight down.

    • Remove the glass from the phone.

    For reassembly, if the fingerprint scanner is removed from the back cover: it’s much easier to place the fingerprint scanner in the small compartment on the back of the phone, connect it and then finally put the replacement back cover on. The adhesive on the inside of the back cover will get connect to the fingerprint scanner and hold it tightly.

    The NFC antenna and coil assembly might get stick to the back cover due to adhesive spreads while trying to pry the back cover to open the phone. Take a look inside to ensure the assebly has not got sticked. If so, try using a credit card like plastic to get it peeled of from back cover without breaking the assembly always paying attention to the fingerprint sensor as well.

  8. To install a new back cover:
    • To install a new back cover:

    • Use tweezers to peel away any remaining adhesive from the phone's chassis. Then clean the adhesion areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (at least 90%) and a lint-free cloth to prep the surface for the new adhesive.

    • Peel the adhesive backing off of the new rear glass, carefully line up one edge of the glass against the phone chassis, and firmly press the glass onto the phone.

    • Follow this guide to reinstall the old back cover, or to install a back cover without pre-installed adhesive.

    • Be sure to turn on your phone and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing the phone.

    • If desired, you may reinstall the back cover without replacing the adhesive. Remove any large chunks of adhesive that might prevent the back cover from sitting down flush. After installation, heat the back cover and apply pressure to secure it. It won't be waterproof, but the glue is usually more than strong enough to hold.

    • You may also need to transfer the camera bezel to your new part. If that's the case, follow our camera bezel replacement guide.

    Bonjour,

    Vous parlez d’ajouter de l’adhésif, comment et où le trouve-t-on cet adhésif ?

    Difficile à appliquer ?

    Cordialement,

    Stéphane

    • If the sensor is stubborn, gently slide a halberd spudger or opening pick under the plastic backing to loosen the adhesive before pushing.

    • This will make the adhesive less likely to be reusable, so try pushing with your finger first.

  10. If the fingerprint sensor adhesive is intact, it may be reused, but if damaged at all you should remove the old adhesive and apply replacements.

Will the phone still be water proof after this

gavinjay - Yanıt

No. After the adhesive is removed, your water resistance is as gone as your warranty.

James watling -

after the rear panel is removed? ... no...

John Joiner - Yanıt

Nice its simple action with this tutrial

Seibors - Yanıt

Could I apply tesa tape 1mm to the sides then would it become water resistant like ip 68.

Darrell Ross - Yanıt

Great tutorial, simple and straight to the point. My type of learning.

If I could add just one little thing….

I myself would have loved if you would have touched on replacing the fingerprint scanner ribbon when replacing the back glass. , I learned

None the less, you gave me knowledge and I thank you…

Alvin Thomas - Yanıt

it will be if you do the process 100% correctly and ensure a proper seal by applying enough adhesive at the edges (yet not too much!) at the edges and around the camera and fingerprint scanner. In theory that should do it, but bear in mind i have not tested this

Robin Bogaards - Yanıt

Where to buy original rear back glass?

a.voloshin - Yanıt

Under “parts required”, I see:

Galaxy S8 Rear Glass Panel - $90

Galaxy S8 Aftermarket Blank Rear Glass Panel $15

1. I assume I only need one of these parts, correct?

2. if correct, what’s the difference between the two? they look like the same exact part, except the $90 is Samsung branded and the non-branded is $15

Thanks everyone!

Jimmy Ng - Yanıt

That is correct. The non-branded one is generic. The one that says “SAMSUNG” is name brand and just costs more. You can use either one.

Albert Ayala -

This tutorial’s “items needed list” is missing the fingerprint sensor’s adhesive gasket, which you guys carry, and is therefore incomplete. please correct this. I missed this and ended up with needing to make two carts, one specifically for the gasket.

The tutorial was very good otherwise. thank you for making it.

Jasper Davis - Yanıt

Will the phone still waterproof if you replace a new back glass panel?

J Brmdz - Yanıt

What adhesive do you use ? can you recommend ? I bought one that already had adhesive on the back panel but one side raised up slightly, I could get my finger nail underneath and the gap was noticible.

Links to product would be great.

Thanks

Dave

dave - Yanıt

Hey Dave a the top of the guide we list the rear cover adhesive you can find in our store!

Sam Goldheart -

Thanks for the guide, was handy. Definitely needs glue to hold the new cover, fingerprint sensor and the other bit on - just ordered a B-7000.

drpotatoman - Yanıt
