This is a good teardown when you will finally see what is under the black panel on the rear. It can also guide you to change the battery, if needed :)

Have a nice reading.

    • After removing the back cover, use a torx T5 to remove all screws at the back

    • Use an opening tool or plastic spuged to remove the outer frame.

    • First we're going to remove the battery

    • Using a plastic spudger, remove the battery connector from its socket.

    • The battery will come off the motherboard when you put a little bit of pressure under it.

    • Don't bend the battery too much

  3. Motorola Moto G 1st Generation Teardown: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • The naked motherboard will reveal 2 connectors (apart from the battery-socket)

    • This is the front-cam

    • This is the digitizer/LCD flex

    • To remove the camera, use a pair of tweezers to remove the tape

    • Next, use a plastic spudger to open up the socket.

    • Pull the camera up (out of the lens-socket) and pull so the flex will come out of it's socket

    • To remove the LCD/Digitizer connection from its socket, remove the blue silicone cover

    • Next, use a plastic spudger to open the socket-lock

    • Carefully remove the flex cable.

    • Although this flex seems to exist in 2 parts, it's actually removable as one. Only the wide flex has to be disconnected.

    • Now, it's only the motherboard that's left.

    • Use a fine plastic tool to pull the main board out

    • There are no screws at this step

    • Never put too much stress on the motherboard, find other places to put pressure if it doesn't cooperate immediately

  7. Motorola Moto G 1st Generation Teardown: step 7, image 1 of 1
    • All done

    • The earpiece remains in the screen assembly. Take care when removing it from the screen. Push gently on it from the screen-side to lift it out.

The procedure is very simple, but i realise that take off all the screws is a little bit difficult. As well, remove the motherboard that is attached to the plate behind the screen.

Question. How difficult is it to replace the glass?

I'm just about to have a go at it now!

I'll let you know

Dan Cameron -

Just replaced the broken screen on my XT1039. Be aware XT1032,XT1033, XT1039 - the screen components are all the same. I bought the screen/frame/digitizer as one unit for the XT1032. It was relatively straight-forward with a bit of care and attention in certain areas. After you've taken the 14 screws out the rest of the phone is basically glued together with sticky-strips. I followed the advice on a You-tube video and used a hair dryer to heat up the ribbon cables and to loosen the earpiece. Phone now fully functional - hooray! Thanks to all on this forum!

Can we further dismantle individual elements on motehrboard? Like I want to replace the memory.
