How to disconect volume flex from nfc charging pad?

Does anyone know how the volume flex is connected to the nfc charging pad?

Or instructions on how to disconnect or de solder it so a new volume flex cable can be replaced?

I cannot find any info anywhere on the net how its connected or how to replace it.

Hello Tommy,

The volume button flex has 2 connectors; one clips into place while the other is soldered onto the charging pad. If you can’t find any videos it usually means it’s easier to replace to whole assembly (volume flex + charging coil). With that said if you Really really want to have a go at it I’d recommend looking at iPad Mini 1 Charging port replacement. It’s basically the same idea. You shouldn’t need hot air station since there are 3 pads close to each other, soldering station should do. Hugh Jeffreys has a nice video: (timestamp: 3;20)

Hi Roman,

Thank you very much for that info and the video link. It helped me a lot. I've put together a nice kit of things so I've got a re work stations and other equipment to do pretty much any job.

Again that for letting me know that its soldered on. Many thanks.

I tried to buy it together as a kit the volume flex and charging coil but here in Europe I can only find it as separate pieces so wanted to confirm how its connected so I don't wreck it.

Thanks for responding to my question. :)


@Tommy Duris The pads have little hole in them. If you zoom in closely on your original assembly you will be able to see silver tin shining through


Yes I understand. Thank you
